ICTR Also Offers Voucher Support And Pilot Grant Funding
ICTR Voucher (micro-grant) Program
The ICTR Vouchers Program awards vouchers (micro-grants) to help defray the costs for services needed from other UMB Cores, such as CIBR, GCRC, BIORESCO, NORC, and IDS services, as well as off-campus community-engaged research services. ICTR Vouchers — valued up to $5,000 for unfunded projects to enable preliminary work and generation of pilot data on clinical translational research projects and up to $10,000 for already funded projects to complete the project's established specific aims. Vouchers are limited to one per researcher per year regardless of whether the request is for a new project. A project that has received voucher support in the past is not eligible for additional voucher support. Applications accepted every 2 months. Beginning August 1st, applications will be accepted quarterly.
ICTR ATIP Grant Program
The ICTR Accelerated Translational Incubator Pilot (ATIP) 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 research. The ICTR will award pilot grants up to $50,000 to investigators at UMB, with some awards earmarked for community-focused research. This funding opportunity announcement will be available late in the year with applications accepted in January of each year.
