Partner Society & Industry Sponsored Grants
Throughout the annual CORE cycle, our partner societies and industry partners are continuously involved in the application submission and review process. Final funding decisions for partner society-funded grants are determined by the partner society. Each partner society has a slightly different funding selection process; however, in general, the final decision is made by an advisory panel, council or board.
