Research Application Fees

  • A non-refundable payment must be submitted along with the application by each cycle’s deadline. We understand that sometimes it takes a little more time to have a check sent from your particular organization. So, your application may still be considered if payment is not received. However, you will not receive approval/denial notification until payment has been fulfilled.

    *Currently, we do not accept credit cards as a form of payment.
