Review Process

Please note that after you submit your application it will be reviewed by Research Program staff. If there are any problems or if these guidelines have not been followed, your proposal will be un-submitted. Please make sure that you check your email after you submit your application so that any outstanding issues may be addressed as quickly as possible.

The ATS Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) will review the applications in July 2020. The membership of the SAC is listed on the ATS Website and additional ad hoc reviewers will be invited to participate as needed. Funding decisions will be made on the basis of scientific merit, novelty, and responsiveness to the purpose of the specific grant program.


ATS Policy on Additional Grant Funding

Simultaneous submission of grants with scientific overlap is allowed, but if multiple applications are funded, then the applicant must notify the Research Program within one month of formal notification of award. A subcommittee of the SAC will assess the degree of overlap. In the case of significant scientific overlap, the applicant will have to choose between the ATS Foundation research grant and the other grant. Budgetary overlap is not allowed.
