open rfp -- Letter of intent

Interested and qualified scholars from a variety of academic disciplines are invited to submit a letter of intent between February 15 and April 15, 2005 . Submission will be accepted no later than midnight on April 15, 2005 . The letter should describe the 2-year research project you propose to conduct and it should be not more than three pages in length, single-spaced, with no smaller than a 10-point font. Attention should be paid to the significance and the methodological design of the project. A curriculum vitae summary of not more than three pages for the principal investigator should also be attached. This should include references to previous articles and books written by the investigator.

The Letter of Intent stage is a competition and only the highest rated letters of intent, selected by a panel of judges, will be invited to submit full proposals. We expect to invite approximately 40 letters of intent to continue to the submission of the full proposal. We especially welcome applications that plan to incorporate collaboration across disciplinary boundaries.
