Online Application Instructions: Post-Ph.D. Research Grants
PLEASE NOTE: The official application form for the Post-Ph.D. Grant has been revised to reflect recent changes made to this program. All applications must be submitted using the most recent application form (clearly marked with the deadline date on the front page) OR APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR REVIEW.
Official “Post-Ph.D. Research Application Forms” and required attachments must be submitted using the Foundation's online application submission procedure, which uses a third-party platform, Blackbaud/Microedge’s Internet Grants Application Module (IGAM). (Read their privacy statement here.)
In addition, one printed copy of the application form and required attachments, PLUS four (4) printed copies of the application form only, must be sent to the Foundation. This material 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 forms that e-mailed or faxed directly to the Foundation will not be accepted. Please refer to the application procedures for details and guidelines about the information requested in the application.
