Who should I submit the SPARC proposal to?

The final version of the proposal must be mailed to sparcproposals@broadinstitute.org on or before the due date.

PLEASE NOTE: A pre-proposal is no longer required, but it is highly recommended that the appropriate Program/Initiative Steering Committee review and provide input on any proposal prior to submission to the SPARC Committee.

Who should review the budgets before submission to the SPARC?

Budgets should be reviewed with Marian Orfeo prior to submission.

What are the criteria for a SPARC proposal?

Please refer to the criteria section on the SPARC home page.

Who can submit a SPARC proposal?

All Core Members, Senior Associate Members, Associate Members and Broad staff scientists with PI status are allowed to apply for SPARC funding. Staff Scientists without PI status may apply for PI status specifically for a particular SPARC proposal submission, but this process must be initiated and completed prior to consideration of the SPARC proposal by the SPARC committee. For more information, please contact Stacey Donnelly.
