Funds will be awarded on a competitive basis. Applications will be evaluated and prioritized on the basis of a strategic and scientific review by an internal faculty Review Committee and BRI leadership. The final selection round will be a live review session with the BWH Scientific Advisory Board. $500,000 is available to this RFA; requests for up to $500K will be considered.
Letters of intent (due April 3rd, 2017) will be reviewed and a subset of applicants will be invited by May 8th, 2017 to submit full applications due Monday, July 17th, 2017; monies are expected to be made available on December 1st 2017.
