Projects That Will Not Be Granted

Projects viewed most favorably will be those that address systems-level issues and/or create lasting infrastructure with the potential to enhance behavior analysis in a given region over the long term. One-time events, such as a workshop, that seek to influence individuals but not systems or infrastructure normally are not appropriate.


Ineligible costs include:

   ° Travel of any kind.
   ° One-time events that are unlikely to have long-term impact.
   ° For-profit workshops, seminars, or other events.
   ° Projects that include stipends for applicants, administrative support, or other labor or assistance.
