Rose F. Kennedy Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (RFK IDDRC) 2015 Pilot and Feasibility Awards
FUNDS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR INTELLECTUAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES-RELATED RESEARCH PROJECTS. The 2015 Pilot and Feasibility Awards competition is now closed and the 2015 awards have been given. Eight (8) awards were made during this funding year.
The Rose F. Kennedy Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (RFK IDDRC) announces the availability of Pilot and Feasibility Awards (up to $25,000 annually-per award) for both basic science and translational projects that involve intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs). The awarded funds are intended to enable new and established investigators to generate preliminary data in order to successfully apply for extramural funding for their project. Pilot and feasibility funds are not intended to support or supplement ongoing IDD research programs. Eligible applicants must hold the rank of instructor or higher at the time of the award.
ELIGIBILITY (in order of priority): This program is designed to support:
- New investigators with interests in IDD research. Meritorious applications from new investigators will receive priority for funding.
- Established faculty who wish to explore a new area of research involving IDDs that constitutes a substantive departure from their on-going work.
- Established faculty currently focused on IDD-related research who are attempting to build preliminary data for additional NIH grant support.
Please note: It is not necessary to be an RFK IDDRC investigator or clinical partner at the time the application is submitted.
Questions concerning this program should be directed to the RFK IDDRC Administrator, Lisa Guillory (firstname.lastname@example.org).
