Though the opportunity below calls for student-authored proposals, the submitting PI must be the student’s faculty advisor, with the application submitted by the registered institution, so proposals will still go through your GDO Grants Analyst. If you have students who are interested in this opportunity, please contact your Grants Analyst as soon as possible.
