Priority will be given to projects that aim to do one or more of the following:
Typical proposal requests should be less than $30,000, but applicants may request up to $50,000. Successful applicants may use awarded funds over one or two years. Up to 100 percent of the total can be used as a stipend for the applicant and/or team members (e.g., consultants, field assistants, data analysts, lab assistants). However, a solid justification must be presented if more than 50 percent of the budget will be used for stipends. Requesting funds to “buy out” salaries for full-time employees from their institutions is not allowed. All applications should include a clear review of the state of knowledge about the topic and a plan for evaluating the outcomes of the proposed work.
