The specific grant amount awarded depends on the particular scope and merits of the project. All grants are milestone-based and can have multiple milestones per grant. Some funding can be provided before the start of the project depending on the nature of said project (for human resource purposes or for hosting events, for example), but most would be allocated after milestones are completed. Each milestone carries different weights depending on the nature of said milestone.
All applications will be reviewed by a panel of three members representing the Business Development, Engineering, and Research departments selected from the Analog team. The grant application and selection process is as follows:
First, send in an application by filling out this form.
For applications requesting 10,000 USD or more, there will be a follow-up conference call to work out about the details of the grant. Applications requesting under 10,000 USD may not require a follow-up call.
If the grant application passes the review stage and is accepted, Analog will send a grant offer along with the relevant milestones and completion criteria. Once the terms are agreed upon and finalized, the agreement is signed by both parties.
Once the milestones are completed by the applicant, the Analog team will evaluate the applicant’s adherence to the grant’s terms and then allocate funding accordingly.
