Proposals are due January 16, 2018, and may request a maximum of $30,000 (US$) per project. A maximum of $60,000 will be awarded across two or more projects. The announcement of projects selected for funding will take place at the AASV Foundation Luncheon in San Diego, California on Sunday, March 4, 2018 (awardees will be notified in advance).
