Proposals Due: July 1, 2017 
Funding starts: September 1, 2017

Proposals must be led by a CU employee. While external partners are welcome, Grand Challenge funds are expected to stay within the university (e.g., no subcontracts to external organizations or people). An exception to this is that GC funds may be used to support travel to bring partners to CU or to hold conferences or workshops.
