Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The EGC tends to favor proposals where CMS funds can be leveraged or where applicants have no other natural funding to which they can apply.

An applicant may be involved in only one proposal per competition, and proposals must come from CMS members. In the case of a joint application, at least one applicant must be a CMS member.

Each application must have a principal investigator (PI) who will also serve as contact person on all matters connected with the application. The principal investigator will have signing authority for the grant and is responsible for submitting the final report. He or she is the person to whom we will acknowledge receipt of application and the person with whom all subsequent correspondence takes place. In the case of a successful application, the check will be sent to the PI. It is the PI who is ultimately responsible for submitting a final report.

Creative, unique, innovative proposals have an advantage over projects that have a history of support from other sources. Applicants who sense that their proposal is truly different may find it beneficial to spend additional time on their applications. Stronger supporting arguments are likely to be most successful and attract the most funding.
