HHMI selects researchers and grantees to support through competitions that have specific objectives and eligibility criteria; thus, HHMI does not encourage and rarely funds unsolicited grant proposals. Most HHMI grants competitions have a formal invitation and review process. Information about eligibility requirements and how to apply for specific programs can be found on each program's page below.
