Grants may be used to support all or part of the costs of a project, such as for research participant incentives, research supplies, or dissemination costs.

Awarding of the Grant

  • More than one grant may be awarded in a year, depending on the amount available for the grant, and the number and cost of approved applications.
  • Grants are generally given to the grant recipient’s institution in order to prevent the grant from being considered taxable income for the recipient. Individuals interested in applying should consult with the grant or sponsored program offices at their institution in advance of applying to confirm any institution requirements.  
  • Depending on the review of the received applications, the Committee may recommend that awards not be presented in a given year.

Reporting on Grant Project

  • Recipients of the award will provide a required one-page progress report to the MAC RAC committee approximately six months after funds are dispersed.
  • The MAC RAC committee will correspond with previous grant winners to track presentations and publications resulting from grant funds.
  • Grant winners are encouraged to present their findings as either a paper or poster presentation at the MACMLA annual meeting.
  • Recognition of MACMLA’s support must be given in any publications originating from this project.
