Researchers submit a one-page Letter of Intent that is reviewed by our Scientific Review Committee (SRC). If the scientific concept is approved, then the applicant is asked to submit a detailed three-page Grant Application.

The Grant Application is scrutinized by a Specialty Advisory Panel – three members of the SRC who have expertise in the applicant’s area of interest. If two of the three approve the project based on innovation, feasibility and potential impact, the applicant is invited to create a presentation to post on this crowdfunding website to raise money for the diabetes research project. The entire process can take as little as 12 weeks.
