The dissemination plan and timetable must be compatible with the annual schedule of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and its meeting date in February. The grants are awarded in the late fall; presentation will be at the meeting in two years. Example: If the grant request is submitted in 2014, and awarded in late 2014-15, the presentation cannot be made until the 2016 meeting or (if two years in length) at the 2017 meeting.
Disclosure. Applicants must disclose current or previous FSF research grants awarded to any of the investigators.
CVs from all involved. One investigator, preferably the Principal Investigator, must be an affiliate or member of the AAFS.
All submissions must be received and completed by June 15. All research proposals must be submitted by the individual conducting the research. If a proposal is submitted for funding of a master’s thesis, the proposal must be submitted by the student NOT by the academic advisor or other academic supporter.
