The deadline for TIRF’s 2020 Doctoral Dissertation Grants (DDG) competition has been extended until Wednesday, May 27th. Please share this news with individuals you know who may be interested in applying for a grant from TIRF.

In addition to the revised deadline, we understand that the COVID-19 crisis has resulted in delays for some DDG applicants relative to the process of obtaining IRB/Ethics approval. If an individual’s DDG application is complete except for IRB approval, s/he should submit her/his proposal by the deadline and include a cover page letting TIRF know when s/he expects to receive approval. TIRF will do its best to work with applicants.

As a reminder, the Foundation is offering DDGs in the amount of up to US $5,000 per award. The deadline for receipt of complete proposals is now Wednesday, May 27, 2020. For more information, please click here.
