Note: Applicants may apply for multiple grants (through the CLLC website) for the same research project/program/conference. However, please note that if an applicant receives a grant (with the earlier deadline), the second award will be given to the same applicant only if funds are available after the award decisions have been made, and provided the applicant has *not* exceeded their requested budget with *all* funding sources.
