How to Apply

We have bi-annual application deadlines of March 31 and September 30. Awards are typically announced around May 31 and November 31. [See schedule below.] Requests for support from the Foundation can be made at these designated times via a simple application. Applications, whether from an individual or an organization, must include a reference from a health care professional recommending the project and the individual or organization applying for the grant. Applicants must also disclose any conflicts of interest in accordance with their institution's or agency's policies.

Receipt of applications will be confirmed with an immediate email confirmation. Applications are reviewed periodically by the board. Approvals by the Board of Directors are oriented toward:

  • early research in new therapies or techniques;
  • reviews of data and information to better understand practices in the field of resuscitation and acute critical care;
  • educational activities combined with measurement to enhance care; and
  • promising start-up projects whose initial results may allow researchers to seek additional funding from other sources, allowing for continued research that will require more extensive trials or scale.

The Board will respond to all proposals during the designated schedule below based on two application deadlines per year, and will on occasion request further information or have direct discussions with grant applicants.

Approved grants will be listed on the Foundation website.

Grant recipients are required to provide a report on the activity for which funding is received whether the activity is a research activity or a supported event or program that is not related to the research.
