What is a discretionary grant?
A discretionary grant is a grant in which an organization selects the award/grant recipient based on merit and eligibility. After Fort Worth ISD applies for a discretionary grant, the applications are sent to the organization for a competitive review process and final funding decision. The review process may vary depending on how the funder determines either by peer review panel or by individuals. The awarding organization is reviewing, assessing, and evaluating the quality of the grant application to inform their funding decisions so it is competitive.
