APPLICATION PROCEDURE - PHASE ONE
The Letter of Intent
The first step in the proposal process is the submission of a letter as outlined below. The Foundation will accept only one letter of intent per twelve month period per investigator. On the basis of this letter, the Whitehall Foundation's scientific advisory staff will determine whether or not the proposed research project will continue to the application process. Support will not be provided to individuals who receive or expect to receive substantial support from other sources.
Letters of intent should be sent as an attachment to LOI@whitehall.org. The subject line should read Letter of Intent and the email message should contain only the PI contact information. Do not include cover letters or descriptive emails. Letters of Intent must be received by the close of business on the deadline date (or the following business day if appropriate).
The following information must be included as listed below:
Part 1 Cover Page (use institutional letterhead):
Part 2 Research Abstract (plain paper):
The abstract is a technical description, not exceeding two pages in length, of the proposed research project. The abstract may not exceed 600 words in length and the font must be in no less than 11 point type. Figures are acceptable in the letter of intent. Figure legends should be included in the word count total. The word count should be displayed at the end of the abstract; abstracts longer than 600 words will not be accepted.
