Awards are limited to non-profit institutions such as medical, osteopathic and dental schools, veterinary schools, schools of public health, pharmacy schools, nursing schools, universities and colleges, public and voluntary hospitals, other non-profit institutions that can demonstrate the ability to conduct the proposed research. Applications will not be accepted for work with funding to be administered through any federal institution or work to be performed by a federal employee, except for Veterans Administration employees. Funding is prohibited for awards at non-U.S. institutions.

Submission of an application to the AHA Research Programs must be made through Grants@Heart.  Paper submissions will not be accepted. The system is available 24/7 through Internet connection and a Web browser.
