Grant Submission Process

Thank you for your interest in submitting a proposal for grant funding to the ALS Therapy Alliance (ATA). Our organization traditionally awards grants from one to three years in term ranging from $100,000 to $1 million in funding to both non- and for-profit companies. National and international companies are eligible to apply.

The following outline will help you prepare the information needed for our next funding review. (Due to changes in our funding, we now have an annual grant review process instead of biannual.)

Please note grant submission deadlines and number of copies requested in order to ensure timely processing of your application. The ALS Therapy Alliance does not cover indirect costs.

If you have questions about the submission process or this application, please contact Ray Bisson, Grants Manager at ray @ alstherapyalliance "dot" org, or visit our FAQ page.
