Pilot Research Grant


    The PSF Pilot Research Grant (PRG) is intended to foster plastic surgery innovation in the areas of basic science, clinical outcomes and translational research. These grants provide seed funding which is intended to allow investigators to begin work on preliminary research projects related to the plastic surgery sciences. Projects that are a prelude to the NIH or other external funding agencies are encouraged.


    Up to $10,000 for a one-year project to support the preliminary or pilot phase of scientific research projects.


    If you have not been previously funded by The PSF then you must review The PSF Grant Writing Module and complete the Grant Writing Module Certification per the guidelines. The PRG Proposal Checklist will guide you through the comprehensive requirements, when completing your grant application. Please utilize this most important tool for your PSF grant submission through proposalCENTRAL. When uploading your grant application, this checklist must be attached.
