Exploratory and Special Projects
In addition to our four programs, we also fund Exploratory and Special Projects [XSP]. XSP grants support unusual or unique opportunities to address significant national and international problems. Under this program, including the program area for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, we make a limited number of small grants for projects falling outside our regular grantmaking programs.
Proposals for XSP grants are by invitation only; unsolicited proposals are discouraged.
