BWF's Grant Application System Instructions
Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF) requires all applications for this program to be submitted electronically through BWF's web-based Grant Application System. The applications must be submitted by September 18, 2012, by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. No exceptions.
Applicants are encouraged to start early and review the program background, eligibility, selection, and FAQs prior to beginning the application. Certain proposal information will be requested on-line when you access the BWF Grant Application System, but the majority of the application consists of various materials prepared by the applicant and uploaded to the system. (See Proposal Sections).
Access to the BWF Grant Application System through the links provided on this page. Create a log-in and password to gain access to the application. You will be required to successfully complete an eligibility quiz to continue the application process. The application may be accessed and changed multiple times as needed prior to the application deadline. However, once the deadline has passed, the application cannot be changed.
Once the application is complete, click the "review and submit" button from within the application. If all required fields have been entered and required attachments uploaded, a submit button will be made available to you.
Once the application is submitted, you should receive an automatic email indicating the proposal has been submitted. If you do not receive email notification, please contact Melanie Scott via email or (919) 991-5107.
