Expedited Proposal-Enhancement Grants (EP-EG) support Center Investigators of the St. David’s CHPR as they move into the final phase of preliminary work essential to a specific funding application. It is expected that funding will support primary tasks that may include refining the intervention and obtaining information to support research design decisions.
Candidates for EP-EG grants are Center Investigators (full-time University of Texas at Austin tenured or tenure-track faculty members) who:
- expect to complete the pilot in question within 6 months of submitting an EP-EG request;
- expect to submit a proposal for a major study (e.g., R01, R15, substantial funding from foundation) within 12 months of submitting the request; and
- work in a substantive area compatible with St. David’s CHPR’s mission.
Applications may be submitted at any time and should include:
- a three-page description of the planned project, including how activities funded by EP-EG will support the specific funding application, timeline for completing the project, and details on when and where the application for funding for the major study will be submitted;
EP-EG application form in PDF Format
