School of Medicine Bridge Funding Program

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
Full-time faculty members in the School of Medicine are eligible to apply for the 24th round of bridge funding. This program is designed to provide temporary (up to 12 months) and partial support during continuing efforts to obtain full extramural funding.
Applications will be evaluated by a faculty committee seeking to identify and support faculty members who are likely to be funded upon submission of amended applications (based on scores and comments in previous round(s) of review).
Priority will be given to faculty members with experienced research teams threatened with disruption and to new investigators with one or more rounds of well-scored but unfunded federal agency applications and who are within one year of exhausting all available startup funds.
