Two types of pilot project grants are available.
LEVEL 1 GRANT
Level 1 grants ($1,000-$5,000) will support either individual research project development or the creation of networking groups and research teams. Funding could be used to pay for meetings, graduate assistant time, consultant time and travel, and travel related to the formation and on-going activity of the networking group. These funds are intended to jump start research projects of all types that ultimately lead to the development of grant proposals.
To apply for funds, please complete the seed application form and email it to Mary de la Garza (firstname.lastname@example.org). Level 1 funding has no specific deadlines. It is important for investigators to talk with Mark Hayward (email@example.com) when developing their Level 1 applications and budgets.
LEVEL 2 GRANT
Level 2 funding ($5,000-$15,000) will support development of multi-investigator interdisciplinary research projects with specific research questions, a well-conceived theoretical basis, an identified team of collaborators, and the potential to gain external funding. Level II funding can be used to pay for graduate student time, travel, external consultants, or hourly support of activities. Faculty salaries are not supported. The primary criteria for funding are scientific excellence and the potential to gain external funding. Co-funding with other units is encouraged.

Modest support is available to fund conferences focused on population health science research. Co-funding is especially encouraged. Requests for support should be directed to Mark Hayward. There are no specific deadlines for requests. Funding is based on the relevance of the conference topic and availability of funds.
Support is available to host colloquium speakers showcasing population health science research. Co-funding is encouraged to maximize the breadth of population health science activities across campus.
