CHM Grants - Center Director Funding

Overview of Center Director Funding Opportunity and past applications that were awarded.

CHM is offering a small, internal funding opportunity to support mission aligned projects.  Trainees are encouraged to apply and CHM welcomes submissions by trainees with a note of support from their CHM mentor. This opportunity is possible due to the CHM Center Director Endowment Fund.

Eligibility: CHM faculty (Core and affiliated), PIs, Directors and trainees (with mentor endorsement & support)

Amount:  $25,000 - $40,000 in total to be awarded across one or more projects

Timeline: Please submit proposals by noon on 4/29/24. Funding starts 7/1/2024.

Who will decide?  Richard Davidson as Center Director, in consultation with a small group of ad hoc CHM faculty to be determined based on submissions received.  Faculty will not be asked to weigh in on their own or trainee submissions in order to prevent conflicts of interest.

Criteria/considerations for evaluation:

  1. Alignment with CHM mission and priorities
  2. Will proposed activities contribute to the development of a grant proposal, such as pilot data?
  3. Will proposed activities support collaboration across the Center
  4. Will proposed activities support DEI objectives?

Note:  This funding is not intended to fill funding gaps for existing projects or fund ongoing commitments. However if there is a new direction for a current project or a novel analysis of an extant dataset, (i.e. an extension), this would be acceptable for consideration. In addition, proposals are not required to be scientific research projects.
