LOOKING FOR FUNDING IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES Julie C. Kong, MEd, RD, LDN, CRA Associate Director University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health Office of Research Services January 18, 2013
SPH Office of Research Services: Review the sponsor's RFP/RFA specifications; Obtain the required information (biosketches, letters of support, etc.) for proposal submission; Schedule scientific/technical grant team meetings Develop budget and budget justification; Manage the proposal development process for the PI; Ensure format grant documents (i.e. abstract, graphs, images, tables, appendices, etc.) meet sponsor specifications; Complete the Proposal Approval Form (PAF), including securing signatures and obtain approval of the UIC Office of Research Services; Prepare and submit the proposal to the sponsor by the deadline.
Timing is Everything! Use standard grant cycles to plan your research interests Principal Investigator Initiated Research Grants (R Series) – due dates are February, June and October of each year Research Career Development (K Series) due dates are February 12, June 12, and October 12 of each year Getting a grant takes time. Begin your funding search early. It can be 6 months to a year before beginning of the grant (period between an application deadline and notification of an award).

Pilot Grants Available for Doctoral Candidates Studying Health Promotion among Older Minority Adults Due Date: Dec. 3, 2012 The Midwest Roybal Center for Health Promotion and Translation seeks pilot grant applications from UIC doctoral students studying health promotion among older minority adults at risk of disability. The center will consider proposals requesting up to $12,500 for one- year projects that focus on health promotion (exercise, diet, substance abuse, sleep, stress, health screenings), factors that enhance motivation for behavior change, and factors that promote the translation of evidenced-based programs into activities sustainable at the community level.
UIC Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences (CCTS)
“Just in Time" funding program is designed to increase the competitiveness of selected external grant proposals ("parent grant") by helping investigators (a) bolster preliminary data for upcoming submission of new or competing renewal grant proposals or (b) address critiques of a summary statement from a reviewed grant proposal. Eligibility Principal Investigators must be clinical, research, or tenure track UIC faculty or must be affiliated with other CCTS partners. Rolling Submission; $15,000 for 1 year
UIC Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences (CCTS) Clinical and Translational Research Support for Pre-doctoral Students - Supports the dissertation research of basic biomedical PhD candidates who are preparing for careers as translational researchers. Post Doctoral Trainee Opportunities in Translational and Transformational Research to Improve Home, Community & Work Participation Access and Opportunities with People with Disabilities qualified candidates in any relevant discipline for postdoctoral research training experiences in community-based participatory research (CBPR) to improve community living, participation and work opportunities with people with disabilities, including the development and evaluation of innovative demonstration projects done collaboratively with people with disabilities.
To foster outstanding new clinical and translational research at UIC by supporting the development of preliminary data that can be used to launch new NIH or other externally-funded research proposals; To encourage interdisciplinary teams of investigators to develop collaborations or new research avenues; To promote interactions between basic and clinical scientists; and To support research collaborations with community partners and organizations. Topics Health Information Focused Drug Discovery Public Health/Health 2 years in duration ($30,000 each year)and focus specifically on activities needed to prepare competitive NIH grant proposals. Deadlines for the Winter 2013 pilot grant program: Feb 1, 2013 P.I. Eligibility: clinical, research, or tenure track UIC faculty UIC CCTS Pilot Grant
The Provost’s Awards for Graduate Research Intended to recognize outstanding researchers among UIC graduate students and enhance the quality of their research through financial support. Date due: October 15, 2012 and Spring, March 18,
Campus Research Board Pilot Grants Award: Up to $20,000 for one year (Last competition Aug. 2012) Eligibility Principal Investigator must have a full-time (at least.8 FTE) UIC faculty appointment. PI must be within 8 years of her/his terminal degree as of the application deadline Tenure-Track or tenured faculty Purpose: This support is intended to help emerging researchers develop preliminary data or other materials necessary for new extramural submissions, or in some cases, to resubmit applications based upon sponsor reviews.
The Chancellor's Discovery Fund for Multidisciplinary Research - FY2013 Competition Pilot grant program intended to support up to five new multidisciplinary collaborations led by emerging research leaders at UIC. Purpose of this program is to foster academic inquiry that draws on the expertise and innovations of multiple disciplines, to nurture the research career trajectories of promising early stage investigators, and to help awardees leverage extramural funding. This program includes an incentive to encourage new interdisciplinary collaborations involving the humanities. Due: Feb. 15, 2013

Weekly NIH Funding Opportunities
Research (“R”) Funding Opportunity Mechanisms Program Announcement (PA) - Released by the institute to announce its interest in building or enhancing its research program in a particular area. The PA typically is an ongoing solicitation, accepting applications for multiple receipt dates, for up to three years. NIH Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Award (R21) Provide support for the early and conceptual stages of project development Project period of up to two years. Direct costs for the two year project period may not exceed $275,000 PA Reducing Health Disparities Among Minority and Underserved Children (R21) PA Chronic Illness Self-Management in Children and Adolescents (R21)
Requests for Applications (RFA) Typically one-time solicitations for grant applications addressing a defined research topic. Each RFA specifies the scope and objectives of the research to be proposed; application requirements and procedures; and the review criteria to be applied in the evaluation of applications submitted in response to the RFA. RFA-AG Secondary Analyses and Archiving of Social and Behavioral Datasets in Aging (R03)
Research (“R”) Types of Funding Opportunities Small Grant Program (R03)- supports small research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time (up to 2 years) with limited resources (e.g. data analysis) and a budget for direct costs of up to two $25,000 modules or $50,000 per year. PA Research on the Health of LGBTI Populations [R03] PAR Small Grants for Behavioral Research in Cancer Control (R03) PA Healthy Habits: Timing for Developing Sustainable Healthy Behaviors in Children and Adolescents (R03)
