How Funding Decisions Are Made
For the AAO-HNSF grants, the CORE Study Section subcommittee chairs presents its recommendations for funding of AAO-HNS Foundation grant applications to the AAO-HNS Foundation Board of Directors, through the Coordinator for Research, at its next regularly scheduled meeting following the study section. All final decisions regarding actual award of grants are based on the scores of the meritorious applications.
For the contributing societies and foundations, the recommendations, applications, final priority scores and critiques are shared with each contributing society and foundation. Each society and foundation has a slightly different process; however, in general, the final decision is made by an advisory panel, council or board.
