Preparing a Research Grant

Interested individuals should complete the application on the NEAIR Research Grant web page and upload the required documents when they are ready to submit the entire application. Completed applications must be received by midnight on June 30th. Recipients will be notified by July 31st about the outcome of their application.
The completed proposal must include:
  • A narrative that is three to five pages in length, double spaced, in Word format or a similar editable document. You will be asked to submit two versions: one with identifying information and another copy that can be used for a blind review that has no identifying information. Your narrative should address the components articulated in the “Criteria for Selection” section and include an outline of a poster, paper, or workshare on the research to be presented at the annual NEAIR conference following the funded grant. 
  • A budget and disbursement schedule along with specification of supplemental or matching institutional funds.
  • A resume or curriculum vitae for each principal investigator.
  • A letter from the applicant’s institution (if applicable) that certifies that the institution is willing to handle the funds at no cost to NEAIR or to the grant. The letter should specify the agency (i.e., the college or university itself vs. a university foundation) to which the award will be made if approved.
