Request for Proposals (RFPs)

A white-colored page, depicting the cover of a form, on top of a two-tone blue circle. Logo symbolizes the template that Principal Investigators (PIs) are required to use to prepare their proposal.

Each funding cycle, submitted problem statements are reviewed by regional stakeholders and local subject matter experts (SMEs). Based on these reviews, problem statements are ranked, with the top ranked receiving a request for proposal (RFP). If the selected problem statement was submitted by Principal Investigators (PIs), the RFP will be sent directly to the PIs. If the selected problem statement was submitted by the Center Advisory Board (CAB), the RFP will be open to interested researchers.

Please see below for the appropriate templates required to complete a proposal — as well as any open RFPs that are currently being solicited.
