How Are Grant Applications Reviewed?
Grant applications are screened by the SOCAN Foundation Staff, then submitted to special committees for review. Those committees generally make recommendations to the full board of directors, which offers final approval at quarterly board meetings. Decisions by the board of Directors or Jury are final.
How To Receive Your Grant Money
All grants are paid by direct deposit upon receipt and approval of your final report. Once the final report has been approved, you will be receiving your payment within 2 to 3 weeks. To submit that report, all you have to do is log in to your account and go to the “Requires attention” section, where you will find the final report form under the «Pending» tab. You can check the status of your final report in the «Requires attention” section.
