Grant Application Procedures and Policies
Principal investigators who hold appointments/positions in accredited hospitals and clinics, healthcare institutions, academic medical centers, professional associations, member societies and other not‐for‐profit entities in the U.S. are welcome to apply.
Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to submit proposal. The JTSSF Scientific Advisory Board will review the proposal and notify the researcher of an accepted project to complete a Grant Application. A panel that includes, but is not limited to, the Scientific Advisory Board and the Board of Directors of the JTSSF will review Grant applications. Grants are generally made for one year; however, multiple year research can be considered.
The 2015 grant funding cycle is closed. Please check back in 2016 for future grant funding opportunities.
Letters of Intent to Submit Proposal
The first component of our grant process is to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). The letter should describe the proposed project concretely and in detail, and should indicate clearly why the proposed study promises significant contributions to the prevention, treatment, and awareness of stroke.
The LOI should include:
- A title for the proposed project
- A description of the research
- An explanation of how the proposed project fits within the JTSSF research focus
- Information on the project’s methodology and significance
- The budget required to complete the research
- Proposed collaborators, if applicable.
