The Global Genome Initiative (GGI) Rolling Awards Program provides funding to Smithsonian-affiliated researchers for projects that support GGI goals of expeditionary research and development of genomic biodiversity science at the SI. Requests up to $30,000 with clear budget justifications will be considered. Smaller proposals to enhance field work and/or acquire genomic collections are especially encouraged. Proposals with a DNA barcoding component may be jointly considered and/or funded by the SI Barcode Network.
Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis until funds for FY17 are no longer available. Proposals must be submitted at least two months prior to the project start date. Note that this proposal call is separate and distinct from the GGI Peer-Review Awards Program.
