The American Sleep Medicine Foundation (ASMF) is pleased to announce the 2012 Cycle of the Humanitarian Projects Award. The primary objective of this award is to provide support to projects that address sleep problems in disadvantaged populations. The ASMF is particularly interested in projects that develop or promote novel approaches to address human suffering in under-served populations as it relates to inadequate or non-restorative sleep, or sleep disorders in disadvantaged groups.

The ASMF intends to award a number of one-year grants ranging from $1,000 to $20,000 (no single grant to exceed $20,000). The number of grants awarded will depend on the number, quality, scope, and breadth of the applications and their expected outcomes. Applications are due July 23, 2012. For more information on the funding opportunity, read the funding announcement on the ASMF website.
