Researchers from all disciplines are encouraged to apply, and
multidisciplinary teams are welcome. Preference may be given to
applicant organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)
(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and are not private foundations
as defined under Section 509(a). Applicant organizations must be
based in the United States or its territories.
The initiative will support a range of projects whose sum value
will not exceed $1 million. Each research team should submit a
budget of no more than $300,000 for a time period of no more
than three years. Projects that cost less and with shorter dur-
ations (e.g., $50,000 over one year) will have a higher likeli-
hood of being funded than larger projects.
