This competition is directed towards enhancing our knowledge of the complex biological, physical and behavioral interrelationships that led to the development of our species and which are responsible for both the shared and variable features that characterize living human populations. It recognizes that understanding of the processes and pathways of human evolution requires input from a wide range of disciplines which examine our species from multiple perspectives and across both time and space. Effective accomplishment of this goal requires large scale initiatives which provide a counterpoint to standard NSF program grants. The Human Origins competition (HOMINID) will support large scale, long term, integrative research and infrastructure projects through awards of up to $500,000 per year for up to five years. It is intended that HOMINID awards will provide for innovative approaches to long-standing questions about the history of our species. It may
also support fuller explorations of these questions through these larger and longer-term awards. Advances in technological capability may also allow for the investigation of questions that were previously unassailable. Infrastructure development is also eligible for support either as a stand alone project or as part of a research award. The intent of this competition is to support projects that go beyond the smaller, shorter duration, single investigator awards that disciplinary programs have been able to provide in the past. Contingent on the availability of funds, the program expects to make two to four awards in fiscal year 2002 and to continue the competition on an annual basis. One goal of the competition is to develop a portfolio of awards that reflects the multiple approaches to the understanding of human origins. It is expected that the combination of awards will complement each other and prove to be mutually informative as they progress.
