Apply for a CLL Research Grant


Applicants are encouraged to carefully review the Application Instructions and Research Program Guidelines prior to starting the application process. 

Applicants will need to first create an account in ProposalCentral. Once you are logged in, under the “Grant Opportunities” tab search for the term “CLL.” Then click the “Apply Now” button and begin filling out the required information. No documents are required to be uploaded for the Letter of Intent phase. However, applicants will need to review CLL Society’s Research Program objectives to complete two of the required questions. For the Full Research Proposal phase, multiple documents are required and must be uploaded electronically (in pdf format) through the ProposalCentral portal. Please see the Application Instructions for further details surrounding what documents are required. Please limit your submissions to one application per grant program.

Incomplete applications will not be considered. All required application documents must be submitted through the ProposalCentral application portal. Please do not email or mail paper applications. Any incomplete submissions or applications received after the LOI deadline of November 20th at 11:59 PM EST will not be considered. ADA accommodations are available upon request.


Grant funds will be disbursed following the execution of a final grant agreement between the Grantee, the Grantee’s Institution, and CLL Society. An Award Agreement will be shared with the selected Awardee upon being notified that they have been selected as the Awardee of a CLL Society Grant.
