To receive APF funds, recipients must be affiliated with a nonprofit charitable, educational, or scientific institution, or governmental entity operating exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.

APF welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds with respect to age, race, color, religion, creed, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, gender, geography or training background.

International applicants from countries that have diplomatic relations with the United States and who meet the other eligibility requirements may apply for APF funding.

Evaluation criteria include:
- For predoctoral candidates: Proven academic excellence in course work
- For all candidates:
(i) Evidence of leadership skills
(ii) Demonstrated commitment for growing the field
(iii) Demonstrated focus on providing care to the most at-risk members of the community

APF Trustees must wait one year after their term of service before they can be considered for a grant or an award.

APF does not allow institutional indirect/administrative/overhead costs and/or fees to be taken out of grant monies. If the applicant is selected for funding, and the institution accepts the funds on behalf of the applicant, the institution must adhere to the grant application budget and affirm in writing, on the grant Terms & Conditions, that it will waive all institutional indirect/ administrative/overhead costs and/or fees.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline for applications is February 1, 2023. Applications are due at 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time (HST) on the due date.

APF tries to announce grant recipients approximately two to three months after a grant deadline, though the exact time may take shorter or longer depending on the number of applications received.

Funding begins when recipients submit IRB approval and the required paperwork. APF funding will continue for a maximum of 12 months from the date of the grant, unless otherwise specified.

Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval is required for any research project involving human participants.

APF cannot disburse grant monies without IRB approval. Successful applicants have six months from the date of the grant approval to obtain IRB approval, or the grant will be rescinded.

You can apply to as many APF programs as you like. Researchers can win multiple awards for different projects. Each individual project, however, can only win once. This means that if you win funding for your project, that specific project will be removed from consideration for future funding opportunities from APF.
