The Uncle Kory Foundation (UKF) has implemented a Medical Advisory Board to administer the grant selection process. This review board is responsible for scoring each application and ultimately making their recommendations to the Founders of UKF. Careful thought has been given to prevent a conflict of interest between the applicants and the review board. Ultimately, after considering the recommendations from the Medical Advisory Board, the application score, financial considerations, and the overall area of research, UKF Founders and Director will determine the grant recipient. The awards will be formally announced in March of 2017.
