Applications will be reviewed promptly by the scientific advisory committee. The committee will evaluate applications based on the following criteria: (a) the scientific merit, originality, and technical feasibility of the application; (b) the qualifications, experience and productivity of the applicant, and the members of the investigative team; (c) the facilities and resources available; and (d) the promise of the research or training as related to the control of breast cancer or to the benefit to be gained by persons with breast cancer. At the discretion of the committee, interviews will be requests of candidates. The evaluations of the committee are provided to the Foundation’s Board of Directors. After considering the relative merit of the applications, the amount of available funds and the Foundation’s objectives, the board will determine which grants will be funded. Applications that are not funded may be revised and resubmitted in a future granting cycle under the guidance of the scientific advisory committee.
