APPLICATION FOR IIF GRANT
The application closed 31st May, 2016 .
While we would love to offer grants to every applicant, not all applicants will receive grants. The grant amounts vary among the grant recipients, and partial and full grants can be awarded. What is covered (i.e. monitoring, lab work, medications, procedures, etc.) under the grant amount will be disclosed to each of the grant recipients at time of award and funds from the grant will be given directly to the clinic.
There is an application fee for each application submitted. This fee is NONREFUNDABLE. If you decide to withdraw your application between the time that you submit and the board has made a decision, the foundation will still not refund the fee. The application fee is considered a donation and the foundation can provide any paperwork you would need to document the donation. The fee needs to be in form a cheque made out to: IBIDUNNI IGHODALO FOUNDATION for N25,000 and to be submitted with application.
Below is a brief description on the grant process once an application has been submitted:

Please do not contact during the 6-8 week review process; the foundation is busy reviewing applications; the foundation will contact you if they need more information. The foundation understands that this is a trying time for infertility patients, but know that the foundation works diligently to get the selection as soon as they can.
This whole process does take 6-8 weeks as we are an all-volunteer board.
WE WOULD NOT RUSH THIS SELECTION PROCESS
