There are two ways to become affiliated with MAISRC as a researcher. One is by receiving funding through MAISRC, and the other is by gaining partnership status on a project that's funded from other sources.
Receiving funding from MAISRC
MAISRC has a competitive RFP process for research studies to advance the control, prevention, and early detection of AIS in Minnesota. Proposals are invited from investigators at any Minnesota-based academic or governmental research institution. The funding period for the next MAISRC RFP is January 2022 through December 2023.
Partnership projects are funded by sources outside of MAISRC and do not need to, but are strongly encouraged to be focused on research priorities. MAISRC has a partnership project approval process which includes the researcher discussing the proposal with the Director, an informal review by the MAISRC Fellows Group, and proposal routing.

Benefits and expectations
Perks are available to MAISRC Fellows and MAISRC Grad Fellows in good standing, meaning fulfilment of corresponding expectations. Status is reviewed on an annual basis. MAISRC Fellows include PhD level researchers; Grad Fellows include graduate students working on a MAISRC project.
