Research Grant Fund Disbursement
NEAIR Research Grants awarded to members who are affiliated with an institution will be awarded through the member’s institution. Grants will be awarded to cover only those research expenses specified in the proposal (direct costs) and will not include funds for institutional overhead (indirect costs).
Members who are not currently affiliated with an institution may apply for NEAIR Research Grants. In those cases, the Treasurer will disburse funds directly to the member after receiving the appropriate documentation.
Grant funds will be disbursed according to the schedule provided by each recipient, with later disbursement preferred in order to accommodate unforeseen changes in plans. Proposals must be proactive; there will be no reimbursement for activities that pre-date acceptance of the proposal. Upon completion of the project, the grant recipient must submit a report listing the actual expenditures incurred, and include receipts for expenses if appropriate. Any grant funds not spent by the recipient must be returned to NEAIR, and NEAIR is not responsible for over-expenditures.
