Nevertheless, this lack of “lower than $3000” grant proposals, and the fact that lot of people have been discussing (and complaining) about this value being too low, the Grants Committee is starting a discussion on rewriting and reorganizing the way it works. Namely, in my personal blog I opened a discussion about the Grants Committee some time ago, and had plenty of feedback, that will be helpful for our internal discussion.
This is great news. I would love to see more and more ambitious grant proposals, as well as awards people an subsist on. I look forward to seeing the new rules.
