Resource Allocation Program (RAP)

Seeding outstanding research

3 Easy Steps to Apply: 

  1. Find the grant mechanism that is best for you 
  2. Write the grant proposal for the chosen mechanism following the grant-specific instructions
  3. Submit your grant proposal via the RAP PORTAL

How RAP Works: 

  1. Applicants select the grant mechanism, not the funding agency
  2. Funding agencies select the awardees
