FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

 

WVCTSI announces 3 pilot funding opportunities; multiple information sessions to be held

The West Virginia Clinical and Translational Science Institute (WVCTSI) has released requests for applications (RFA) for the Launch Pilot Grant, Open Competition, and Small Grant funding opportunities. For information on Letter of Intent and full proposal deadlines for fall 2017, visit the WVCTSI funding page.

WVCTSI will also be holding multiple informational sessions to assist anyone interested in applying for funding. 

 Academic-Community Partnership funding available

WVCTSI has joined the The Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) centers at the University of Cincinnati/Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, University of Kentucky, and Pennsylvania State University to launch a new pilot funding program to support innovative, long-term collaborations between academic medical institutions and community partners with goal of improving health in Appalachia.

The Academic-Community Partnership Program is now accepting letters of intent for projects designed to stimulate the translation of clinical and translational research into effective practice and public policy, in alignment with the mission of the Appalachian Translational Research Network. A unique aspect of this funding stream is that it requires a community partner to serve as co-principal investigator or co-investigator on the grant, and a shared leadership plan must be included in the application. The pilot program will award a total of up to $100,000 in direct costs as a two-year pilot grant to strengthen or support the development of sustainable partnerships between academic researchers and community stakeholders for translational research. For more information, read the full proposal here. For questions about this funding opportunity, please contact 304-293-6581.
