NEW Limited Submission: The Brain Research Foundation – Scientific Innovations Award in Neuroscience (SIA)
Key Deadlines: May 11, 2015 (CWRU internal letter of intent); July 1, 2015 (LOI due to sponsor); Oct 1, 2015 (proposal due to sponsor).
The Brain Research Foundation has invited Case Western Reserve University to nominate one senior faculty member to submit a Letter of Intent for the 2016 Scientific Innovations Award (SIA). The Brain Research Foundation’s Annual Scientific Innovations Award Program provides funding for innovative science in both basic and clinical neuroscience.
This funding mechanism is designed to support creative, exploratory, cutting edge research in well-established research laboratories, under the direction of established investigators. The objective of the SIA is to support projects that may be too innovative and speculative for traditional funding sources but still have a high likelihood of producing important findings. It is expected that investigations supported by these grants will yield high impact findings and result in major grant applications and significant publications in high impact journals.
Number of Applications Allowed: One senior faculty member.
Based on the quality of applications, the Brain Research Foundation anticipates the SIA program will fund a total of $450,000 in grants. Each total award is limited to $150,000 (direct costs) for a two year grant period from the specified dates only (January 2016-December 2018). Exact dates will be provided by the BRF upon application approval. The first grant payment of $75,000 will be made upon completion of the SIA Acceptance Form (January 2016). The final payment of $75,000 will be made contingent upon receipt of a Preliminary Progress and Financial Report (January 2017).
