HHMI selects researchers and grantees to support through competitions that have specific objectives and eligibility criteria; thus, HHMI does not encourage and rarely funds unsolicited grant proposals. Most HHMI grants competitions have a formal invitation and review process. Information about eligibility requirements and how to apply for specific programs can be found on each program's page below.

Investigator Program Biomedical Research Application deadline: September 2, 2020, 3:00 p.m. (ET).
Science Education Alliance Science Education To apply to join the program and begin offering the SEA-PHAGES course in the 2020-2021 academic year, email us at sea@hhmi.org.
