COMPETING RENEWAL APPLICANTS:

Along with your application forms, include an explanation of how this research proposal is a departure from your ongoing work (apart from the first year of your pilot/feasibility project). Please be certain to tell us the progress you have made in the first year (limited to two pages), as well as your plans for the proposed second year. Renewal applicants may apply within the first or second NORC-H funding cycle after initial funding depending on degree of progress made and optimal timing for potential renewal funding.

PURPOSES FOR WHICH FUNDS MAY BE USED:

Funds may be used for technical support and supplies. Equipment is funded only in very rare instances where it is vital to the particular project and is so unique that it is not available in any of the Center’s core facilities. Such equipment requests must be well justified in the budget and approved by the Executive Committee. P.I.’s salaries and travel are not funded.

MAXIMUM AWARD:

The amount of the award varies with the availability of funds. Previous awards have ranged between $12,000 and $20,000. The period of funding is for one year, beginning August 1. Investigators must reapply for a second year of funding if interested. Please submit a budget for up to $20,000 in direct costs, and indicate 0% for IDC.
