After Submitting Your Letter of Intent

Successful applicants who apply for an obesity research grant will be notified and invited to submit a proposal of no more than four pages (11-point Arial font; plus one additional page for budget and justification). The application should contain the following sections:

  • Specific aims and hypotheses
  • Background and reason for conducting the study; justification of the need for the study
  • Design of the study; methods for data collection
  • Timeline and schedule of deliverables
  • Budget and budget justification
  • Recent biosketch or CV

Purposes for Which Grant Funding May Be Used

Funds may be used for technical support and supplies. Equipment may be funded only in very rare instances where it is essential to the project and is so unique that it is not available at any nearby facilities. Such equipment requests must be well justified in the budget and approved by the review committee. PI’s salaries and travel are not funded; however, salaries for assistants to aid in the completion of the study may be funded. Expenditures of grant funds must adhere to the specific line items in your approved grant budget.
