Upcoming VPR Committee and/or Funding Deadlines

Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics
Internal Submission Deadline: August 15, 2017

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is a career development award to enable junior faculty members to carry out innovative bioethics research.

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics supports research that goes beyond current work in bioethics to help resolve pressing ethical issues in clinical care, biomedical research, and public policy.

VPR Seed Grant Program
Internal Submission Deadline: August 21, 2017

The Funding Incentive Seed Grant Program will support only new areas of research for a principal investigator. Research that is already supported by other sources will not be approved for funding. Gap funding to bridge support between external grants or contracts will not be considered. The applicant must clearly and convincingly demonstrate that the proposed project represents a new research direction in an area likely to generate extramural funding. Thus, the proposal must not overlap with any existing grants (i.e. you cannot receive funding from the URC and the SEED Grant mechanisms for the same, or a similar project). Seed funding under this program is to be used to successfully compete for extramural funds to support the project in the long term. Awards will be up to $35,000 for one year only.
