How to Apply


Step 1.

Go to the Determine Eligibility & Compare Grants webpage for initial comparative information.

Step 2.

Review the Submission Rules

Step 3.

Choose the ONE grant mechanism that best fits your research project. Each grant has specific descriptions and instructions that you need to follow.

Step 4.

Definition: same research topic with an amended application or research plan rather than a new research topic and new research plan.
Requirements: Please use up to one extra page to introduce your revised proposal, addressing the issues raised in the review, and any additional changes to your proposal. A new letter from the Chair is not required if the resubmission is within 2 cycles (one skipped cycle max). You will include the old letter and state your resubmission is within 2 cycles and new letter is not required. Make sure the new changes are highlighted in bold or italic font so the reviewers can easily see where and how the proposal has changed. Do not use track changes.

Step 5.

Convert your proposal into a PDF including all supporting documents

Step 6.

Complete the electronic application form and upload your proposal in PDF format.

Step 7.

The system will acknowledge your electronic submission and generate an email to notify the PI 1 (contact PI) the submission was received.

Attention! If the PI 1 doesn’t receive an email confirmation the application didn’t go through. You will need to contact the Program Manager before the deadline to resolve the issue.
Important: the email confirmation serves as a record and has your proposal PDF attached. You have until the deadline to review it and fix any flaws you discover by contacting the program manager and asking to replace it with a corrected version.
