2015 Call for Applications - Closed


The 2015 Core Research Program Call for Applications are now open. Applications will be due April 15, 2015 for anticipated funding to start April 1, 2016.

There are a number of important policy changes and program updates for 2015.

New Grant Mechanisms
The Association recently completed a comprehensive strategic review of its grant funding programs and implemented substantial changes. Application instructions are available and can accessed from the navigation menu. A summary of the new grant mechanisms can be found on the table below.

Grant Cycle Schedule
The Association has moved to a single funding cycle per calendar year for the Core Research Program. The current application cycle (deadline of April 15, 2015) will be the only call for applications in 2015.

Resubmissions
Given the changes to our Grant Mechanisms for 2015, resubmissions of eligible* previously unfunded applications must be submitted as one of the new grant mechanisms, using the current version of application instructions and/or templates. If the grant mechanism that the application was originally submitted as is no longer offered, the applications must be adapted into one of the current grant mechanisms. For the 2015 call for applications only, revised versions of eligible* previously unfunded applications will be considered "new” submissions. Summaries and critiques of unfunded grants should not be included within the body of the application. Before preparing a grant application, please review the application instructions for details on the revised eligibility criteria and changes to the application format.

*Applications eligible for resubmission are only those that were not funded on the first submission. Applications not funded on second submission are not eligible for resubmission.

Citizenship Requirements
In order to expand access to funding, the Association has eliminated the requirement that applicants be United States citizens or possess (or have applied for) permanent residency. Core funding opportunities will now be available to eligible applicants with authorization to work in the U.S. or U.S. possessions, as confirmed by the sponsoring institution.
