Showalter Trust applications due Jan. 9

Nov. 21, 2013

Applications are open for grant awards from the Ralph W. and Grace M. Showalter Research Trust. The areas of eligible biomedical research are broad and described by the benefactors as "the type of medical research that is most likely to permanently benefit mankind."

Applications for funding will be reviewed in two stages. An initial review by the IU School of Medicine Biomedical Research Committee will select the most meritorious proposals for further discussion and ranking. The committee will then provide a recommended ranking to the Showalter Trustees who conduct a second review. Final funding decisions are made by the Showalter Trustees.

Donor intent prohibits the use of Showalter Trust funds for research in psychiatry, sociology or social studies.

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9. Funds will be awarded no earlier than July 1.

Applications must be received via email by the Dean’s Office of Operations at iusmoper@iupui.edu.
