Grant Guidelines and Information
Dear RRF Grant Applicant:
Below are the Guidelines for Grant Application for your use in applying for next year, 2013.
All grant applications are due in the RRF office by November 1st, 2012.
Please comply with all of the elements outlined in the Guidelines.
The completed application should reflect how your work will conform to and implement the purpose of your project.
Grant applications will be reviewed by the Board in mid-December, and all applicants will be notified of the Board’s decision in mid-January 2013.
Grant reapplications will be considered on an individual basis each year.
Alice McPherson, M.D.
General Guidelines for Decisions Made each December
for Grant Awards
A. No grant awards will be made to:
1. Applicants who are not at the PhD or MD level
2. Applicants who are optometrists
3. Applicants who are temporarily based (such as one-year post doctorate assignment)
B. Grant budgets should include salaries, equipment and supplies.
It is RRF policy to not pay salaries for the principal investigators except in exceptional circumstances.
C. Grants must be awarded for one year only. Applicants must re-apply for continued funding on a yearly basis, which will be considered providing progress made is justified in the yearly grant review.
The grant awards should attempt to support a project for a three-year grant period. If you have plans for a three year study, you may include that information in an addendum to the application.
D. Budgets are usually limited to $50,000 per grant unless supported by another funding source for a higher amount.
E. The following may not be included in budgets: travel expense, expenses related to publication of the research, and indirect costs.
F. The grants selected should cover a wide variety of topics rather than one or two research areas. The grants should not be so large that the program is reduced to 3 or 4 projects.
