Application Addendum | American Diabetes Association

Applicants are permitted to submit an Addendum to a grant application following the close of the application submission deadline. Acceptable Addendum materials may only include manuscripts not available at the time of application, and/or proof of Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) and/or Institutional Review Board (IRB) approvals not available at the time of application.

Preliminary Data updates will not be accepted as addendum materials.

Applicants may submit a maximum of two manuscripts per application. If one manuscript was included in the Body of the Application at the time of submission, only one manuscript may be submitted as an Addendum. Manuscript submissions have no page limit. The Association will forward the manuscript(s) to reviewers if received by the addendum deadline. 

If IRB and/or IACUC approval(s) are not available by the Addendum deadline, the Association will accept just-in-time submission of institutional assurances. Applicants must submit proof of approval(s) by the funding start date of the award. Award activation is contingent upon submission of institutional approval(s). The award start date will be delayed until all required proof of approval(s) have been submitted.
