When is the grant proposal deadline?
The grant proposal deadline is April 1st. All grants will need to be reviewed between January and April of each year. All applicants with accepted proposals will be notified before June 30th. Funding will begin July 1st in the same calendar year.

How long is a typical research timeline?
Most research runs for one year unless otherwise approved.

Do we have to have an IRB pre-approved?
We prefer IRB’s to be pre-approved, but if funding is needed for IRB application, we will release funds for IRB and grantee will have a year to get approval. No other funds will be released without IRB approval.

How are grant proposals reviewed?
Reviews are done by the ACP’s Research Committee. The committee will make a recommendation to the Board of Directors based on the strength of the proposal. Recommendations are made using a scaled review process, detailed below.

  1. Will the aims of the study advance phlebology or impact current standards of treatment?
  2. Does the project have scientific merit?
  3. What is the feasibility of completion?
  4. What is the feasibility of publication in peer reviewed journal?
  5. Reputation and Reliability of grant applicant/institution.
