UMB ICTR Funding
UMB ICTR CTSA provides two mechanisms for delivering funding for clinical and translational research to UMB faculty*: the ICTR Voucher (micro-grant) Program, and the ATIP Grant Program. In addition, as a CTSA hub, UMB faculty are now eligible to apply for the NIH CTSA Program Collaborative Innovation (CCIA) U01 and R21 Awards. See below for more information.

Applications Accepted Every 3 Months
The ICTR Voucher Program awards vouchers (micro-grants) to help defray the cost of services needed to generate pilot data for extramural grant/funding applications and peer-reviewed publications. Projects must be clinical and translational research in scope. Visit CIBR website, including GCRC, BIORESCO, NORC CORES, for examples of services that are eligible for voucher support.
Yearly Request for Applications
The ICTR Accelerated Translational Incubator Pilot (ATIP) Grant Program provides funds to initiate, implement, and complete a research project that will contribute to the development of new therapies, devices, or approaches to clinical and community-focused research. The ICTR will award pilot grants up to $50,000 to investigators at UMB, with some awards earmarked for community-focused research. The application deadline is typically in early January of each year.
