We now use a rolling application process. There are no application deadlines and we will evaluate applications within two months in most cases.
We may ask for revisions before funding, so if you want the funds to be available in time for the start of an academic year, submit the application by the end of April. If you need the funds for January, submit the application by the end of October. However, applications submitted later may still be fundable in time for your target date if no major changes are needed.
The current version of the application is at the link below. Or request one from DMHSAEA Board member Larry Golbe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
More detailed instructions appear on the application form.
