Grant Selection Process
The majority of the AAAAI grants, awards, and scholarships are administered by the AAAAI Grant Review Committee (GRC) under the support of the Research and Training Division of the AAAAI Board of Directors. Candidates are selected at the discretion of the GRC after the evaluation of applications by committee reviewers who have acquired experience and expertise to assess the quality, the potential impact of the proposed research, and the research-related activities, within the context of the funding opportunity. All candidates are then approved by the AAAAI Board of Directors. In grants offered collaboratively with another organization, the partnering organization will be included in the selection process.
AAAAI Foundation Faculty Development Award recipient decisions are made by the AAAAI Foundation Council with recommendations from the GRC and final approval by the AAAAI Foundation Board of Directors.
