Pilot Research Grants
The PSF Pilot Research Grant is intended to support residents and junior faculty in their efforts to address focused research questions, obtain preliminary data to support larger grant proposals in the future, and develop a line of research that can be carried forward into an academic career. This grant supports the preliminary or pilot phase of these research projects. Senior investigators are encouraged to use other funding mechanisms, but may apply for this grant if they are proposing a new research concept or novel idea for which no prior funding has been obtained. Projects that are a prelude to the NIH or other external funding agencies are encouraged.
Amount & Duration
Up to $10,000 for 1 year pilot projects
