- Notification of the application status will be sent to the Primary Contact by January 31, 2021.
- Awardees will also receive notification letters (to be sent by January 31, 2021), with the expectation that grant funds will be disbursed up until June 30 of the grant award year. Research project expenses may be undertaken anytime within the calendar year of the award year.
- Awardees must submit an expense report along with receipts as well as the AAR Grants Close-Out Report by January 31, 2022.
- Awardees who wish to extend the research collaboration beyond the initial year are eligible to reapply once for a second year of funding. Unsuccessful applicants are similarly encouraged to reapply in subsequent years.
Acceptance of this grant requires that one or more of the participants share the findings of the research collaboration publicly in at least two different ways. These might include reporting the results of the collaboration in a publication, a blog, or a web page, or in a presentation at the AAR Annual meeting or at another conference sponsored by an IAHR member association.
In addition to these public reports, which may be in any language, an abstract of 150 words summarizing the results and findings of the research project should be submitted in either English or French, the official languages of the IAHR. This abstract should be submitted along with an AAR Grants Close-Out Report summarizing the research activities undertaken, publications produced, and public presentations or other disseminations executed or planned.
While the award may be used to support travel for the collaborators to meet in order to undertake work on the proposed project, the grant is not primarily intended to fund travel to professional meetings (including the AAR Annual Meeting for current AAR members) and cannot be used to buy release time from a scholar’s institution, for supplemental salary (including honoraria for applicants), or to cover institutional overhead costs.
