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 SGRC 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.
