Global Health Center (GHC) Pilot Grants
In order to promote global health research, education and treatment activities among Einstein faculty, the GHC has initiated an annual pilot grants program. This already popular program is intended as a seed investment in attracting larger funding resources to Einstein for global health projects.

The Einstein Global Health Center Microgrant Program
Aims to provide small grants to help jumpstart faculty members’ global health efforts. It is expected that the microgrants will lead to creation of new global health initiatives or further leveraging of existing initiatives.  Applicants may submit requests for microgrants for up to $2,000. Applications should be no more than 2 pages in length, and should explain how the funds will be used to create or strengthen their global health initiatives.

Grants are handled on a rolling funding basis: Click here for current Microgrant application

 Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) Pilot Grants
A key goal of the Einstein-Montefiore CFAR is to support collaborative, translational HIV/AIDS research at Einstein and Montefiore by funding pilot projects that support the following types of research activities: (i) Initiation of new HIV/AIDS research by junior investigators and non-AIDS investigators; (ii) Novel and Emerging research opportunities among CFAR members and (iii) Collaborative research between basic and clinical investigators or HIV/AIDS and non-HIV/AIDS investigators. In accordance with these goals, we invite all faculty at Einstein and Montefiore (both new and established investigators) to respond to periodic RFAs that are circulated throughout Einstein and Montefiore and they can be in one of the following three categories: Investigators New to AIDS Research (Developmental & Pilot grants); Feasibility Studies (Pilot grants); Evolving Research Opportunities (Pilot grants). Each year, 4-5 awards are made in the range of $25,000 to $37,500, which includes $5,000 for the use of a CFAR scientific core or the Clinical core. For the latest RFA, please see the front page of CFAR Developmental core. Please see the list of the applications that were selected for funding based on peer review.
