Due to significant problems with its new electronic proposal submission system (Grants@Heart), the American Heart Association has extended its proposal deadlines by five working days for those who have already entered proposal information into the new system.
The new deadline is January 29, 2009 for the National Scientist Development Grant Program or January 30, 2009 for the Western States Affiliates fellowships. Please note that the extension only applies to those who have already entered data into the system by the original published deadline dates. Therefore, the SPO deadline for these applications is now January 22, 2009 at 8:00 am for the National Scientist Development Grant program and January 23, 2009 at 8:00 am for the WSA fellowships program.
Please contact your SPO research administrator with questions.
