Out-of-cycle Grants Program

  • The first step in the process of submitting a Foundation initiated Request For Application (RFA) application is to submit an LOI, Biographical Sketch for the LOI and LOI Keyword list. The submission of an LOI is required for each RFA. An applicant must submit an LOI and be invited by the Foundation to submit a grant application. A grant application that is submitted without an LOI will result in an automatic denial of funding and the application will be returned to the investigator.
