Purpose and Use of Grant Funds

The primary purpose of the ASLMS Research Grant Program is to conduct research which can be applied to medical and surgical care of patients. Preference will be given to proposed research projects which have a direct implication for medical or surgical applications. Grant funds may be used for all costs associated with the research project. Equipment requests included as part of a proposal will be reviewed thoroughly to determine the necessity of the equipment for the proposed research. Proposals which include equipment requests that are superfluous to the proposed research project will reduce the likelihood that the project will be considered for funding. Indirect costs (IDC or F&A) cannot exceed 10% of the direct cost of the project.
