Research and Development Award Funds

Deadline:  Friday, May 24, 2024 at 11:59pm

The purpose of the R&D Award Fund is to support research activities, including quality improvement (QI). Funds are awarded with the expectation that they will support activities leading to scholarly output, such as presentations, publications and/or grant applications. Funding uses include initiation of new research projects, bridging the funding gap between grants, supporting personnel, and the purchase of supplies. It is not the purpose of the R&D Fund to be the long-term sole source of support for a particular research project or to provide relief from grant overspending.

Award maximum:  $20,000 (awards have ranged from $500 up to the maximum request of $20k)
