The ADEA COS Program Fund Committee is specifically charged with reviewing applications for quality and relevance and making recommendations for acceptance and final approval by the ADEA COS Administrative Board. The ADEA COS Program Fund Committee works closely with the ADEA COS Administrative Board Liaison to the Committee to ensure timely review and to keep the Council abreast of all activities related to the Program Fund.
The Program Fund Committee conducts a review of all submitted applications and notifies program coordinators of their proposal status at least one week prior to the ADEA Call for Programs deadline.
NOTE: The Program Fund Committee’s decisions about funding proposals is independent of the ADEA Annual Session Program Committee’s (ADEA ASPC) decisions. However, while a proposal declined by the Program Fund Committee may be accepted by the ADEA ASPC, the ADEA COS funding is offered contingent on a program’s acceptance by the ADEA ASPC.
