- The small grants are for proposals (up to $200K) that will fund well-defined research projects addressing a specific question.
- The program grants will provide a strategic orientation of research towards a larger and broader objective. These will be larger proposals (about $1 million), defining well integrated programs of research rather than focusing on crafting tightly focused individual research projects.
