Before starting the eligibility form below, please review the Scientific Research Application Instructions and Checklist. These are the steps in the Trust’s Scientific Research grants application process:

1. Letter of Inquiry (Initial Form)
The LOI provides an overview of your proposed research project to help the Trust determine whether your organization and project are consistent with Trust practices and priorities. LOI review typically takes 2-3 weeks. If your LOI is approved, you will be invited to submit a full application.

2. Application (Additional Form)
If invited to submit an application, carefully review the Instructions.

Once you have completed the application, review, edit, and double-check the figures one last time. When you are satisfied with your completed application, click the Submit Form button.
