The number of awards each year will depend on the fund availability. Proposals must be received by April 1 of the current year and will be reviewed by the WATCVM Research Committee, but the committee may request an external review or consultation by an expert regarding specific issues in the proposal. Completed proposals should be submitted to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
