CBD Funding Vehicles
For 2017-2018, the Center for Bioactive Delivery offers two funding vehicles, ranging from $2,000 'microgrants' to a Multi-PI seed grant for up to $26,000.
CBD Microgrant: Application for CBD Fund Use
Award Limit: Up to $2000
Submission deadline: Rolling
The funds should support activities that further the strategic goals of CBD, such as hosting visits by potential industrial partners, co-hosting seminar speakers, travel of Research Theme members to sites of clinical or industrial collaborators, or facilitating internal meetings of Research Themes or across Research Themes.
2017-2018 CBD-IALS Seed Grant Program: Multi-PI Grant Opportunities
Award Limit: Up to $26,000 for a minimum of 2 PIs
Submission deadlines: EXTENDED TO MAY 15, 2018
The funds for this mechanism are specifically earmarked toward generating preliminary data for multi-PI grant opportunities from any extramural funding agency with the specific aim of catalyzing new collaborations or advance existing unfunded collaborations within CBD. Extramural opportunity to be targeted must be identified in the application. Funding is not limited to large center projects, i.e. any extramural mechanism is accepted. Examples include, but are not limited to, multi-PI NSF submissions to standard calls, e.g. NIH R21s, R01s, and U01s.
