Preparing a Research Grant

Return to Research Grant Main Page

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 August 5, 2022. Recipients will be notified by early September 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.
    • Submit two versions: one with identifying information and another copy that can be used for a blind review that has no identifying information.
    • Name the file without identifying information "Blinded_Insert Title of your project".
    • 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 schedule for the disbursement of funds along with a specification of any supplemental or matching institutional funds.
  • A resume or curriculum vitae for each person listed on the grant application.
  • An agreement to provide 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.
  • An agreement to present findings at an upcoming NEAIR annual conference.
