Letter of Intent

A letter of intent to apply is due Mar. 15, 2022. Submit your letter by completing the form below.

Letter of Intent Office Hours

Interested teams should attend at least one office hours session to receive guidance on their letter of intent. These office hours will be held in the Healthcare Innovation Lab’s conference room on the 6th floor of the Mid-Campus Center (MCC) from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 8, 2021 and Jan. 12, 2022.

These sessions will be unstructured conversations where you can receive assistance scoping out your idea and/or figuring out what sort of preliminary data is most relevant and how best to obtain it, and perhaps be pointed in the direction of other potential teammates. 


Accepted intent proposals will be invited to apply.

Former Big Ideas Applications

Letters of intent and applications of former winning Big Ideas teams have been posted to the WUSTL Grants Library.  Individuals with access to the WUSTL Grants Library can access these documents here under Institutional Grants and Big Ideas.

While the content of these documents can be relied upon for examples of winning Big Idea submissions, teams are required to comply with the new format for this year’s letters of intent and applications. Instructions will be included in the RedCap survey for each.
