Last Chance! Letters of Intent for Biological Integration Institutes are due THIS FRIDAY, December 20th!

The Biology Integration Institutes (BII) program supports collaborative teams of researchers investigating questions that span multiple disciplines within and beyond biology. There are two tracks of proposals:

    1. Design: The Design track is for the development of activities that would lead to a collaboration for an Institute.  These are 1-2 year awards that are for up to $200,000.  Any sort of meeting and planning activities can be proposed.
    2. Implementation: The Implementation track is for full Institute development, these are cooperative agreements up to 5 years in duration and for up to $12.5 million.


Letters of Intent are only required for Implementation proposals.
