Important information for applicants submitting to the AHA - Jan. 26 deadline

Research investigators, fellows & research administrators should read the information below about submissions to the American Hearth Association for the Jan. 26 deadline.

Regarding all applications to the AHA Mid-Atlantic Affiliate:
The Interim Vice Chancellor for Research (Barbara Entwisle) should be selected in Grants@Heart as the Grants Officer.  Do not select any other names listed in their system.   If you have already selected someone else, please make the change before submitting your application in the system to the Grants Officer.  That will greatly facilitate the approval and submission of your application in Grants@Heart by a signing official in the Sponsored Programs Office.

Regarding Fellowship Applications:
As confirmed by OSR on Friday, internal budgets for both the pre- and post-Doctoral Fellowships should be attached with the eIPF in RAMSeS.   

Please note:
Cost share for a portion of the health insurance for Pre Docs will be necessary, due to the AHA funding limit for health insurance.  The AHA also sets a limit on the health insurance for a Post Doctoral Fellowship, but unlike the Pre Doc Fellowship, they allow for any remaining portion to be taken from the stipend award (if that is not feasible, then the uncovered portion will require cost sharing and should be captured on the IPF). Please prepare internal budgets accordingly.

The difference in a stipend amount paid to a fellow by his/her department and that awarded by the AHA does not require cost share. Stipends may be supplemented by non-sponsored funding. AHA does not award tuition. (OSR does not require documented cost share for tuition in these applications)

Please direct any questions to the School of Medicine Sponsored Programs Office (962-3950).
