Once a year, ICCTR provides pilot grants to support Boston Children’s Hospital junior faculty with a focus on population health, broadly defined. Young investigators can be challenged in obtaining funding early in their careers, and small grants can be instrumental.
Research Support/Pilot Grants up to 10K, and up to ten grants may be awarded this year.
The goal of this funding opportunity is to jump-start small projects for early-stage investigators (instructors and assistant professors). We encourage underrepresented minorities (URMs) and those who are re-entering research fields after suspending research careers to apply. To demonstrate progress, we expect every award recipient will submit a related abstract, manuscript, or grant as well as present research findings at a grantee forum.
