Grant Process

  1. The Foundation has established its fiscal year as July 1 – June 30. It considers grant applications two times during each fiscal year at both its January and June meetings. November 28, 2017 is the deadline for consideration at the January meeting and April 1 is the deadline for consideration at the June meeting. Grant applications received after a deadline will be considered at the next designated grant review meeting. In its sole discretion and for good cause shown, the Foundation’s Board may consider a grant application on an expedited basis at any time during its fiscal year.
  2. Completed application – the online application must be fully completed. You will receive a confirmation e-mail.
  3. Signed under oath;
  4. Approval by the Foundation Board – all requests for grants will be reviewed and acted upon by the Board of Directors of the Maryland Bar Foundation; and
  5. Funding mechanism – when a grant is approved, the grant will either be an outright award, or will be provided under certain conditions that the Board considers reasonable.
