Application Guidelines

Updated for 2015

  1. Not more than one application per institution in each of the three grant categories will be funded. Applications received after December 10, 2014 will not be considered.
    ***Due to a technical problem, applications will be accepted through December 16 at 12:00 A.M. Central Standard Time (US).***
  2. A team of research experts led by Dr. Michael Meyers will review the proposals and make recommendations to the trust. Awards will be announced during the month of May 2015. Special consideration will be given in two areas: 1) emerging novel concepts that constitute significant innovation and 2) new investigators in the field of melanoma.
  3. Applications will be accepted for a broad range of melanoma research projects involving basic science, clinical trials, etc.
  4. Applications from non-profit organizations under the U. S. Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c) (3) are eligible for consideration. If a grant recipient is a foreign entity not under the U. S. Internal Revenue Code, an Affidavit related to non-profit status must be completed prior to payment of grant funds. The Affidavit is available on request.
  5. The funding is considered a research grant, and The Harry J. Lloyd Charitable Trust funds cannot be applied to institutional overhead, indirect costs, or other organizational levies.

    C. Include a justified budget for the proposed project.
    D. Please submit your proposal and all attachments online using this site.

  7. Because the Lloyd Trust board of trustees believes that all of life is infused with great value, the following ethical guidelines apply to all grants.

    B. Recipients will not use embryonic or fetal cell culture tissues systems in any research funded by the Lloyd Trust.
    C. The use of transgenic animal models in which human genes are inserted into the germ line requires advanced approval by the trust.
