The Foundation does not encourage applications on treatment of the complications of advanced alcoholism. However, research involving treatment intended to elucidate the pathogenesis of alcohol-related problems will be considered. Non-research activities such as education projects, public awareness efforts, and referral services are not eligible for support.
The Foundation does not support training of pre- and post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and medical students, interns, and residents. It does not fund thesis or dissertation research. Grants are made to academic and research institutions in the United States, Canada and South Africa -- not to individuals.
Grant applicants are typically notified within a month following the Advisory Council meetings, which is held in April or May. Refer to a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) for more details on grant review procedures and grant funding.
