2014 VA Young Investigator Award applications due Feb. 17

Dec. 12, 2013

The VA Medical Research Service at the Richard L. Roudebush V.A. Medical Center has released a request for applications for faculty members seeking small research grants.

Up to two awards of $20,000 to $30,000 each will be awarded from funding. Clinical relevance and significance to the veteran population will be considered in assigning priorities. 

Applicants should be a qualified investigator (M.D., D.O. or Ph.D./RPh.) employed by the VA unless under the direction of a VA employed as a five-eighth investigator and with the intention of becoming a five-eighth VA Primary Investigator employee.

Applicants should also have an academic rank not exceeding assistant professor and no current or prior history as a principal investigator of NIH or VA funding. Applications should be directed at the study of discrete projects intended to produce preliminary data in support of a future application for a VA Career Development Award or VA Merit Review grant. The applicant must remain qualified to apply for VA funding throughout the funding period. Awards will not be made for purposes of providing bridge funding.

Support for this award is provided by the Indiana Institute for Medical Research. Complete grant applications are online.

Complete applications are due Tuesday, Feb. 17. Interested applicants should also send a letter of intent with the project’s topic and title by Tuesday, Feb. 2.

Award notifications will be made by April 15.
