  • Travel (to conduct research or disseminate findings)
  • Non-PI (personnel) stipend/salary support (this includes co-PI’s and/or Research Assistants)

Additional Eligibility Criteria

Applicants must:
- Be enrolled in accredited master’s or doctoral programs

Applicants from Arizona and New Mexico are encouraged to apply.

APF welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds with respect to age, race, color, religion, creed, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, gender, and geography.

APF Trustees must wait one year after their term of service before they can be considered for a grant or an award.

The Foundation does fund derivative projects that are part of larger studies.

APF does not allow institutional indirect/administrative/overhead costs and/or fees to be taken out of grant monies. If the applicant is selected for funding, and the institution accepts the funds on behalf of the applicant, the institution must adhere to the grant application budget and affirm in writing, on the grant Terms & Conditions, that it will waive all institutional indirect/ administrative/overhead costs and/or fees.

Pre-Application Information
The deadline for proposals is February 7, 2024. Applications are due at 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time (HST) on the due date.

APF tries to announce grant recipients approximately two to three months after a grant deadline, though the exact time may take shorter or longer depending on the number of applications received.

All application materials, including letters of recommendation, are due by the application deadline. Applicants may submit their online application forms before the recommender has submitted the letter. Letters of recommendation will be accepted until the deadline.

Funding begins when recipients submit IRB approval and the required paperwork. APF funding will continue for a maximum of 12 months from the date of the grant, unless otherwise specified.

Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval is required for any research project involving human participants.

APF cannot disburse grant monies without IRB approval. Successful applicants have six months from the date of the grant approval to obtain IRB approval, or the grant will be rescinded.

For grants and scholarships that are $10,000 or more, APF will disburse the funds to the grantee’s institution.

You can apply to as many APF programs as you like. Researchers can win multiple awards for different projects. Each individual project, however, can only win once. This means that if you win funding for your project, that specific project will be removed from consideration for future funding opportunities from APF.
