Phase II Proposal


Phase II is by invitation only.  Unsolicited proposals are not accepted at any time.  Proposals received after the deadline will not be considered.  The deadlines for invited proposals are 4:30pm (PT) on February 15 for consideration at the June board meeting, and by 4:30pm (PT) on August 15 for consideration at the December board meeting.  If either date falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the deadline is 4:30pm (PT) on the following Monday.  The Foundation encourages earlier submissions.


Receipt of Phase II Proposals will be acknowledged within four weeks. Upon receipt of a complete Phase II proposal, the Foundation will notify the institution if any additional information is required for the review process. After the Board of Directors has made its final grant decisions in a given grant cycle (June or December), all Phase II applicants will be notified in writing. No inquiries regarding the Board’s decision will be entertained in the interim.


The Foundation will only consider proposals that are complete and contain all the required forms and information listed on the Phase II Instructions.
