Full proposals consist of a cover page, proposal, conflict of interest statement, project team profile, list of current grant support, timeline for obtaining follow-on funding, intellectual property summary, and citations.

Complete details regarding the full proposal will be sent to invited faculty in January 2021.
The Coulter Workshop series, held from late January through early March, is designed to assist faculty in preparing the proposals. Though not required, faculty members are strongly encouraged to participate and bring any other members of the project team. Further details about the Coulter Workshop series will be made available in December.
