You were asked to provide a reference document because you are familiar with the applicant's scientific interests and abilities. You will be required to upload a reference document to the AHA's online application system, Grants@Heart. A reference document is confidential and is not viewable by the applicant (principal investigator) or others associated with the application. References are critical to the applicant's peer review, however, missing reference documents will not prevent an application from proceeding in the peer review process.

Forms are provided for your convenience. Click the link below to download the appropriate form for your program type. Download the referent form to your computer and complete it. After completing the form convert it to a PDF (Portable Document Format).

Contact Information:
For Grants@Heart login issues/assistance, call 214-360-6107.

IMPORTANT: You must have the e-mail you received from Grants@Heart for the upload process to work correctly.

You can access the Grants@Heart system 24/7 through Internet connection and a Web browser.

The applicant identified you as a referent by entering your name and email address into his/her online application. This created an auto-generated email to be sent to you.

How to Upload Your Document to Grants@Heart:

  1. It is important that you click on the "CLICK HERE TO UPLOAD" link in the e-mail you received from Grants@Heart. This will take you to the application to upload your documentation.
  2. In Grants@Heart, click on the Upload button (located under the application information).
  3. Click on the Browse button and select the reference document you completed from your computer.
  4. Click the Save button. You should receive a success message in red at the top of screen.
  5. To verify the document you uploaded, you may click on "Link to the Chosen Document." If you uploaded an incorrect document in error, repeat steps 2 through 5. Be sure to check the uploaded form, to ensure your content is still displaying correctly.
  6. Click Exit to close the screen and return to the Grants@Heart login page.
You may receive reminder emails from the system, since an applicant can monitor Grants@Heart for the status of your reference and can generate email reminders to you up to the date of the referent deadline.
