**Short turn-around time**
This limited submission funding opportunity (detail below) is posted on the Informer at: http://informer.ogrd.wsu.edu/Opportunity.aspx?ID=8195 . All instructions for this limited submission pre-proposal can be found at this site. Please pass this opportunity on to interested faculty and encourage their participation.
Hours: 1-5pm daily
Office of Grant & Research Development
Scientific Innovations Award (SIA)
Brain Research Foundation (BRF)
Letter of Intent
The first step in applying for a BRF SIA is to submit a Letter of Intent. The deadline for the LOIs 4:00 p.m. CST.
If the LOI receives a favorable review, the researcher will be invited to submit a grant application. The grant proposal deadline is 4:00 p.m. CST.
Agency Deadline Note:
BRF is accepting one LOI per institution/university, which is to be nominated and submitted by the Office of Research.
Based on the quality of applications, BRF anticipates the SIA program will fund a total of $300,000 in grants. Each total award is limited to $150,000 (direct costs) for a one to two year grant period from the specified dates only. A PI can receive a maximum of 2 consecutive years of funding. 100% of these SIA funds must be utilized for direct costs.
To be eligible, the researcher must be a professor or associate professor, working in the area of studies of brain function in health and disease. Current major NIH or other peer-reviewed funding is preferred but evidence of such funding in the past three years is essential. Researchers are ineligible to submit more than one BRF SIA proposal in a funding period.
The SIA Program provides funding for innovative science in both basic and clinical neuroscience. This funding mechanism is designed to support creative, exploratory, cutting edge research in well-established research laboratories, under the direction of established investigators. The objective of the SIA is to support projects that may be too innovative and speculative for traditional funding sources but still have a high likelihood of producing important findings. It is expected that investigations supported by these grants will yield high impact findings and result in major grant applications and significant publications in high impact journals. Studies should be related to either normal human brain development or specifically identified disease states. This includes molecular and clinical neuroscience as well as studies of neural, sensory, motor, cognitive, behavioral and emotional functioning in health and disease.
The grant proposal must detail a new research project that is not funded by other sources. This grant is not to be used as a source of bridge funding.
Funding preferences include the following:
1. Funding is to be directed at projects that may be too innovative and speculative for traditional funding sources but still have a high likelihood of producing important findings. This should be a unique project for senior investigators who are encouraged to stretch their imagination into areas that can substantially change an area of research.
2. Funding of research projects that will likely lead to successful grant applications with NIH and other public and private funding entities.
