The purpose of this funding opportunity is to provide promising early career investigators with support to capture the key preliminary data that will support and inform a competitive “R-level” grant application to NIH or other extramural funding source.
Principal Investigator (PI) Eligibility
The PI must 1) have a faculty-level appointment with a minimum of 0.5
FTE support at a participating CTR-IN Institution, and 2) must be eligible to submit extramural grant
applications from their institution as a PI. The PI must devote at least 20% effort (2.4 person months) to the
Pilot Grant project. Per IDeA program policy, an awardee may not concurrently receive funding for their
research program through other IDeA mechanisms (e.g., CTR, COBRE or INBRE).
