Phase II Proposal


Phase II is by invitation only.  Unsolicited Phase II 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 our June board meeting, and by 4:30pm (PT) on August 15 for consideration at our 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.  For more information about deadlines, please see our Grant Cycle Timeline.


Applicants will receive an email receipt confirming a proposal has been received.  The Foundation will formally acknowledge receipt of Phase II proposals 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. We will not entertain any inquiries regarding the Board’s decision in the interim.
