Application Deadlines and Decision Notification
- There are two application deadlines each year, February 1 and August 1. The February 1 deadline is for applicants requesting funding starting in July through December of that year. The August 1 deadline is for those applicants requesting funding starting in January through June of the following year. Funding decisions will be made within three months of the respective deadlines.
- Applications must be submitted using the Foundation's online application submission procedure by midnight (Eastern Standard Time) on the day of the deadline. If it is not possible to submit your application online because of inadequate internet access in your country of origin, you must notify the Foundation at least one week before the deadline (email@example.com) to arrange to submit an application by conventional mail. Please note: application materials e-mailed or faxed to the Foundation will not be accepted.
- Applicants are not required to submit hard copies of their applications to the Foundation. This is an online-only application.
- The Foundation requests that applicants not call or e-mail to inquire about the status of their application. The applicant will be contacted by the Foundation if any additional information is needed to process their application.
