Submission Requirements

All applications must be submitted online through the Komen Grants e-Management System (GeMS): Training on use of the GeMS system will occur at the grant workshop referenced below.

All applicants must participate in either a grant writing workshop or grant writing webinar.  Submitted applications will not be considered from organizations that did not participate in the mandatory training.

If this is your first time applying for funding from Susan G. Komen NCTC using the Komen Grants e-Management System (GeMS), you are required to attend a grant writing workshop. If you have previously applied using GeMS, you must attend either a workshop or a webinar.

The grant application process is competitive. Whether or not an organization has received a grant in the past, funding in subsequent years is never guaranteed and depends upon the quality of this application, the quality of the applicant pool, and the funds available for distribution.
