Award Cycle Changes and Timelines

The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation moved to a two-cycle awarding year last year. Our award cycles are now spring and fall each year, with extended timelines when possible for LOIs, applications and follow-up report due dates. Everyone seems to adjusted to the change; thank you for your patience!

We now begin our second year of two-cycle awarding.
