Selected applicants will be notified by email by June 25, 2024, at which time HGF will request submission of a FULL GRANT APPLICATION prepared in NIH FORMAT.

This final application will be due at the HGF national office no later than July 14, 2024.


Should more than two pages be submitted, HGF reserves the right to edit and may, at its discretion, exclude the additional pages when the proposal is sent to the research committee for consideration.
