Single-paged concepts should be in 12 point font with 1 inch margins and should include:
- an overview of the proposed project emphasizing any unique aspects and pilot studies (for Research Program concepts, indicate area of emphasis for project – medical research or science and engineering research);
- a description of the methodologies and key personnel;
- a brief justification of the need for Keck support; and
- an estimated budget broken down, if possible, by major areas, e.g., personnel, equipment, consumable supplies, etc. (budgets can be rough approximations at this stage).
If there is room, the authors are free to add other details (e.g., background to put the research into perspective, description of the institution’s prominence in the field, etc.). Avoid illustrations in these single-pagers – the researchers will need all the room for text. If a reference is necessary, abbreviate it as (Science, 323, 45, ‘11). DO NOT USE (Jones et al., 2011).
Concept papers must be submitted no later than 5:00 pm on Friday July 20, 2015.
