Apply for Funding

VKRF held an open submission period for Letters of Inquiry (LOI) ending September 14, 2016. Due to the overwhelming number of qualified proposals received at this time, another open submission period will not be held in early 2017. Please stay tuned for the next VKRF open submission deadline.

Often we receive feedback from applicants that express enormous disappointment that proposals are not funded. As we have a completely open application process, we receive an enormous number of good proposals. Please understand that the process is incredibly competitive with only a small fraction of the proposals receiving funds. Unfortunately this means that many worthy projects will not receive funding in any given round. 

Based on the Board’s evaluation of incoming LOIs, a very limited number of applicants will be invited to send in a full proposal. The review process is typically completed eight to ten weeks following the deadline.
