Peer Review Criteria

To judge the merit of an application, reviewers will comment on the criteria listed for the award program. A current list of Funding Opportunities is on the program descriptions page. Applicants must fully address the peer review criteria outlined for each program type.

Applicants should never contact reviewers regarding their application. Discussing scientific content of an application or attempting to influence review outcome will constitute a conflict of interest in the review. Reviewers must notify the AHA if an applicant contacts them.
