Funding covering the period of April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2022
Applicants whose proposals best meet the criteria will have a description of their proposed work included in the BFN’s strategic plan for 2017-22, which will be submitted to the NCE as part of BFN’s renewal application. Inclusion in the BFN’s strategic plan does not constitute a guarantee of funding, even if BFN’s application is successful.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
