NIH Opportunities

NIH Small Research Grant Program Parent Announcement (PA-20-200)

National Institutes of Health (NIH) - Turning Discovery into Health

NIH has renewed its broad funding opportunity announcement inviting applicants to submit investigator-initiated applications for the R03 activity code. The Parent R03 supports discrete, well-defined projects that can be completed in 2 years and require limited funding ($100,000 direct costs). The R03 supports different types of projects, including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. The R03 does not accept clinical trial(s).

Any ATSU researcher interested in an NIH funding mechanism is strongly encouraged to establish an ongoing relationship with program officer(s) at the relevant NIH Institute/Center (IC) up to 1 year prior to submission. Doing so can significantly increase your chances of being funded.

The next deadline is October 16, 2020. Interested parties are asked to contact Sponsored Programs ASAP for help in identifying the best IC for the proposed research based on a thorough, timely review of the relevant IC priorities and funding parameters.
