Submission Requirements

All applications must be submitted online through the Komen Grants e-Management System (GeMS): Training on use of the GeMS system will occur at the grant workshop referenced below.

Applications for 2017-18 must be received on or before Friday January 27th of 2017. No late submissions will be accepted.

The grant application process is competitive. Whether or not an organization has received a grant in the past, funding in subsequent years is never guaranteed and depends upon the quality of this application, the quality of the applicant pool, and the funds available for distribution.
