Arc of Washington Trust Fund
Since 1950 the Arc of Washington Trust Fund has promoted research on the causes, prevention, and treatment of intellectual disabilities and its personal, social, and legal consequences. The Trust provides grants to researchers in the states of Washington, Oregon, Alaska or Idaho..
Because the Arc Trust Fund is small compared to public funding sources, preference is given to junior investigators. Research grants should serve as seed money for future research. Most successful applicants have been affiliated with research universities and have addressed educational, medical, or psychological issues, but the Arc welcomes innovative proposals from any applicant on any topic related to its purposes. Grantees must live or work in Washington.
Letters of intent explaining the nature of the proposal and how it relates to the Trust's purposes, with an estimate of the amount of support required (maximum of $10,000) may be submitted no later than August 15th of each year. Researchers will be notified by August 25th as to whether or not the Trust Board requests a formal grant proposal.
If the Board of Trustees requests that you submit a full proposal, ten (10) copies of the proposal must be received no later than September 20th for board review.
Proposals requested are due by October 1st.
If requested, proposals will be presented at the October Board meeting. Research Grants will be decided at the October meeting. Grants will be distributed in January.
In addition to supplying a copy of any resulting publication, grantees must submit a final report within 90 days of the end of project; an electronic copy on disk and a hard copy of any publications and the final report.
