The Foundation's unique review system of requiring applicants to present their projects in person to a panel of board members has special merit. Applicants are given the opportunity to demonstrate the command of their subject by verbal and visual presentation, to clear up misconceptions, to agree to required adjustments or augmentations and to gain assurance that their project has been well understood and received.
The deadline for submissions is August 15th1 for funding in the subsequent year. No application will be considered after the annual allocation of funds until the following year's competition.
Ideally applications will not exceed 40 pages of text, single spaced, in total, on regular 8 ½" x 11" paper. All sections of the application form must be completed. If a section does not apply please state "Not Applicable" in the particular section. All questions may be directed to the MMSF Administrative Assistant.

Once completed, please submit seven (7) hard copies (the original application form plus six (6) copies) and one electronic copy, of the completed application form to our Administrative Assistant 2.
1 When August 15th falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the deadline for submissions extends to the next business day.
2 The application will not be considered eligible for entry into the current competition unless the original hard copy, 6 duplicate hard copies and an electronic copy are on file at the Foundation by the competition closing date.
