How do I apply?

All applications must be submitted via our secure online application process. You will need to create a username and password to apply. Please review our eligibility criteria before applying. 

Application Timelines

Grant proposals will be accepted and reviewed on a quarterly basis.  Applicants are allowed to apply only twice per year (i.e., if an applicant is not awarded a grant the first time that they apply, they may make one more application attempt within a 12 month period.)  All proposals are due by 4 PM on the day of the Full Proposal deadline.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the majority of our funding has already been allocated for 2020. If you meet our eligibility criteria and are interested in exploring other funding options, please contact a member of the program team.
