270 Proposal Concept Notes (PCNs) were received during the 1st round of the CELCEP's call for bids. These were carefully reviewed and assessed. Over 100 applicants were then invited to submit a Full Project Proposal (FPP) by 30th December 2019. We were extremely pleased with such a high-level of interest; however, with so many high-quality applications, the second stage of the grant round was very competitive with only a relatively small number to be awarded grants. Applicants that are unsuccessful in this grant round (at either the PCN or FPP stage) are strongly encouraged to apply for the funding in future grant rounds.
The application schedule:
Submission of Concept Notes – December 13, 2019
Notification of Concept Notes Evaluation – December 30, 2019
Submission of Full Project Proposal – February 21, 2020
Notification of awards – on-going
