Dept of Education – First In The World Grant

Dear Colleague,

Department of Education has announced the second round of funding for their First in the World (FITW) program.  There are two tiers in this competition: a “development” tier for innovative projects that are supported by “strong theory” (defined in the grant announcement) and larger grants in the “validation” tier will be awarded to applications for interventions supported by significant evidence.  We may submit only one application (Development or Validation).  The limited submission is noted in the FITW FAQ (see A-4 on pg. 4 in the attachment).

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please let me know your intent (names of PI and co-PIs, title of proposal and program tier) by Friday, May 29, 2015.  An internal review will be scheduled if more than one team is interested in pursuing this funding opportunity.

The deadline for submitting our proposal to Department of Education is Tuesday, June 30, 2015.

With best regards, Krishna
