Call for Education Proposals

CIIPS wel­comes the sub­mis­sion of pro­pos­als for one-time research and edu­ca­tion projects. To be eli­gi­ble for fund­ing or part­ner­ship, a project must fit the mis­sion and char­i­ta­ble pur­pose of CIIPS.

CIIPS has a two-stage process for the intake of project pro­pos­als:

  1. Appli­cants are first asked to sub­mit a Let­ter of Intent which describes the project more briefly than a full appli­ca­tion. This enables the Insti­tute to do a pre­lim­i­nary eval­u­a­tion to ensure that the pro­posed project is with­in our char­i­ta­ble pur­pos­es, aligned with our cur­rent man­date and objec­tives, appro­pri­ate to our resources, etc. This step also pre­vents the appli­cant from doing poten­tial­ly wast­ed work.
  1. If the Insti­tute con­sid­ers the project in the Let­ter of Intent to be appro­pri­ate, fea­si­ble and well aligned with our cur­rent objec­tives, we may ask the appli­cant to sub­mit a full Project Appli­ca­tion

Please under­stand that CIIPS does not have funds on hand for research or edu­ca­tion­al projects. If the Insti­tute decides to spon­sor, fund or under­take your project, we also accept the respon­si­bil­i­ty of seek­ing the nec­es­sary funds for the project.

Non-accep­tance of a project is not nec­es­sar­i­ly a judge­ment on the mer­its of a project. CIIPS’ char­i­ta­ble man­date is strict, fund­ing poten­tial is lim­it­ed, and the amount of projects we are able to under­take at this time is very lim­it­ed.

CIIPS cre­ates edu­ca­tion­al pro­grams for:

  • Youth
  • High school stu­dents
  • Uni­ver­si­ty stu­dents and
  • The gen­er­al pub­lic.

We cre­ate edu­ca­tion­al pro­grams and cours­es of study:

  • Inde­pen­dent­ly by con­tract­ing with qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als, and
  • Through part­ner­ships with uni­ver­si­ties, col­leges, and schools.
