Grant proposals are invited for the general ASP Research awards. ASP Research awards will be given to training initiatives, start-up funds, supplementary funding for students, and innovations in animal care and research technology. Research Award amounts range from $500 to $1500, and will be for a period of one year.
For proposals that include an (optional) education or outreach component, applicants should describe the proposed activity and also how they will evaluate the success of that activity.
If you have any questions regarding your proposal’s suitability for funding, please review the Frequently Asked Questions.
To apply for the ASP Small Grant, you must login to the website. You will find a link to the application on your profile page.
Dr. Lydia Hopper and Dr. Julie Teichroeb are the co-chairs of the Research and Development Committee for 2022-2024. Lydia can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and Julie can be contacted by email at email@example.com.
For an ASP general small grant you will need two letters of recommendation. At the time you submit your grant application online, the online system will request the email addresses of your two letter writers and automatically email them with instructions on how to submit their letters. Your letter writers do not have to submit their letters of recommendation by the grant application deadline. However, to ensure that the letters are received in time for review, referees should submit their letters no later than 2 weeks after the grant application deadline.
If your project focuses primarily on conservation, you should apply for a conservation grant, NOT a general small grant. Research grants should be designed to test hypotheses about the proximate and ultimate processes that influence primate behavior, social organization, development, reproduction, welfare, physiology, anatomy and/or evolution.

No. Grants are not awarded to replenish monies already spent. If you have already started your project, the only way you are eligible for an ASP Conservation Grant is if you apply for portions of the project that will be implemented in the future.
Yes. We welcome applications from long-term studies that have side projects or additional needs. As long as your proposal clearly shows the value of the project to primate research, it could be eligible.
Yes. It is not necessary for your project to be connected to a larger program. As long as the project is focused on primate research, is deemed feasible and of high quality, you are encouraged to apply.
The ASP Research and Development Committee announces its final decisions on funding at each annual meeting. Winners are announced at the Business Meeting and at the Closing Banquet.
In general, the ASP General Small grants can be used for research supplies, travel for research purposes, living costs while in the field, field assistance, etc. We do not fund overhead to universities, travel to scientific meetings, or equipment that should be available through the applicant’s institution.
Dr. Lydia Hopper is the chair of the ASP Research and Development Committee for 2020-2022. She can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applicants may not submit duplicate, or essentially similar, grant applications simultaneously to the ASP Conservation and ASP Research and Development committees for review. To discuss whether a project should be submitted as a conservation or research grant, contact one of the committee chairs.
Priority will be given to applicants who have never received an ASP Small Grant Award and previously awarded applicants are not eligible to apply the following year after receipt of funding.
