December 05, 2016

The Great Plains IDeA CTR Network has announced two new Request for Applications (RFAs).

Applications are now being accepted for the Great Plains IDeA CTR Scholar Program and for the Great Plains IDeA CTR Pilot Grant Program. Both RFAs are administered through a National Institutes of Health/National Institute of General Medical Sciences grant to support and grow impactful clinical translational research (CTR) throughout the region.

Administered by UNMC, the Great Plains IDeA CTR Network includes the Boys Town National Research Hospital, North Dakota State University, University of Nebraska at Kearney, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska at Omaha, University of North Dakota, and University of South Dakota. Eligible faculty at all these partner institutions are welcome to apply.

Detailed RFAs, including program/grant descriptions, purpose, eligibility criteria, due dates, and application instructions can be accessed using the links below. Applications will be uploaded and submitted only through these links.

  • The Scholar Program is a mentored career development award that will provide selected scholars with the protected time and seed grant funding to develop competitive CTR projects for submission to the NIH. Scholars accepted into the program will receive salary support and up to $50,000 annually to support preliminary research efforts for up to four years. This award is intended for full-time junior faculty, otherwise eligible to apply for NIH funds, who are seeking to make the transition to an independent CTR investigator.

  • The Pilot Grant Program is open to all faculty at partnering institutions and is intended to provide a mechanism to test the most promising and novel CTR projects and help investigators at all levels obtain preliminary data necessary for successful investigator-initiated extramural grants. Successful applicants will receive up to $50,000 annually, as well as access to resources of the Great Plains IDeA CTR to support these preliminary efforts.
