Application Deadlines and Decision Notification
- There is one application deadline each year on May 1 (for funding starting in January of the following year).
- Applications must be submitted using the Foundation's online application submission procedure by midnight (Eastern Standard Time) on the day of the deadline. In addition, five printed copies of the complete application must be postmarked by the application deadline and received by the Foundation no later than two weeks after the deadline or your application will not be reviewed. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to submit an application by conventional mail. Please note: application materials e-mailed or faxed to the Foundation will not be accepted.
- Applications are screened against the General Criteria for Evaluation. All applicants will be notified as to whether or not they are successful within 6-8 months of their submission. If you have not heard from the Foundation by January 1, please contact the Foundation for information on the progress of your application.
