In the Office of the Vice Provost for Research & Scholarship, over 250 professionals guide faculty, staff, and learners through the entire Research Lifecycle, from project conception and grant submission to sharing results with the world and creating commercial opportunities.

The Office of the Vice Provost for Research & Scholarship gathers upcoming funding opportunities into a once-weekly email distributed each Wednesday. To promote a funding opportuntity in the newsletter, email Melissa Peerless for foundation opportunities or Eva Olivares for other categories of funding opportunities.

Notice of Proposal Eligibility

Note that when a proposal is selected for funding, the sponsor will provide their terms and conditions to the University to review, negotiate and accept. Sponsors do not negotiate terms before the award is issued and the terms are often not publicly available. The Office of Research Administration works hard to ensure the terms are agreeable to the sponsor and acceptable to UM.

Southeast Collaborative Pilot Project Awards

The Southeast Collaborative (P50) (NIH Grant 1P50MD017347-01) was established in 2021 as a regional partnership to enable research to improve chronic disease disparities in African Americans and Hispanics/Latinos in the Southeastern US, led by Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), Meharry Medical College (MMC), and the University of Miami (UM). The Center Investigator Development Core (IDC) will support career development of post-doctoral fellows, early-career faculty, and other early-stage investigators (ESI) in behavioral, clinical, and translational research focused on chronic diseases health disparities that disproportionately affect African Americans, Latinos and other populations experiencing health disparities. Central to this mission is the pilot project awards program, designed to allow ESI to generate preliminary data for extramural grant proposals focused on disease prevention, treatment, and management to characterize the root causes of health disparities and to address disparities in the incidence, morbidity, and mortality of chronic diseases. The IDC will assure that ESI are linked to outstanding local career development opportunities to increase their participation, advancement, and leadership capabilities.

In addition to proposing highly significant, innovative, and rigorous science, pilot projects must meet three key requirements that are described below:

1) Relevance to chronic disease
2) Relevance to health disparities
3) Inclusion of community engagement

AVAILABLE FUNDING: The Center IDC will award at least three pilot awards for up to $50,000 direct costs each for a 12-month period. Each site (VUMC, MMC, UM) will be awarded with one pilot project per year. The proposed project cannot duplicate aims of any currently or previously funded award. Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval of projects greater than minimal risk will be required prior to disbursement of funds to selected awardees.

ELIGIBILITY: Any post-doctoral fellow, early-career faculty, and other early- stage investigators (ESI) member at the Center member organization, including Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Meharry Medical College, and the University of Miami, having the skills and experience to carry out the proposed work may submit an application to conduct behavioral, clinical, and translational research focused on chronic disease health disparities.

APPLICATION REVIEW CONSIDERATIONS: It is expected that these pilot applications will be equivalent in scope to R03 and/or R21 grants submitted to the NIH. The proposals will be reviewed using current NIH review criteria. These include overall impact, significance, investigator, innovation, and approach.

Please refer to the RFA and flyer for additional information.

NIH Funding Opportunities and Notices for the Week

  • Funding Notices for the Week. Investigators interested in submitting a proposal to a limited submission grant, award, or fellowship program (one that restricts the number of applications that can be submitted from an institution), should immediately contact Eva Olivares in the Office of the Vice Provost for Research + Scholarship. 
  • Updated Requirements for NIH Notification of Removal or Disciplinary Action Involving Program Directors/Princial Investigators or other Senior/Key Personnel. Section 239 now requires that, “[t]he Director of the National Institutes of Health shall hereafter require institutions that receive funds through a grant or cooperative agreement during fiscal year 2022 and in future years to notify the Director when individuals identified as a principal investigator or as key personnel in an NIH notice of award are removed from their position or are otherwise disciplined due to concerns about harassment, bullying, retaliation, or hostile working conditions.” Therefore, effective 60 days from the publication of this Notice, NIH recipient institutions are required to notify NIH when individuals identified as PD/PI or other Senior/Key personnel in an NIH notice of award are removed from their position or are otherwise disciplined by the recipient institution due to concerns about harassment, bullying, retaliation or hostile working conditions. Notification must be provided by the Authorized Organization Representative within 30 days of the removal or disciplinary action and must be submitted to NIH through a dedicated web form.
  • NIH NIAID Technology Transfer Fellowship ProgramFellows will be mentored by professionals that work side-by-side with with world-renowned NIAID and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) scientists and will be part of the team that helps transfer innovations from the lab to commercial products (including vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics) that benefit global public health.
  • NIH Grants Policy Statement (Rev. Dec 2021) This update is applicable to all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods beginning on or after October 1, 2021. This update supersedes, in its entirety, the NIHGPS dated April 2021. Previous versions of the NIHGPS remain applicable as standard terms and conditions of award for all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods that began prior to October 1, 2021. This update incorporates new and modified requirements, clarifies certain policies, and implements changes in statutes, regulations, and policies that have been implemented through appropriate legal and/or policy processes since the previous version of the NIHGPS dated April 2021.
  • Childcare Funding Available for Pre/Post Docs Full-time appointed predoctoral and postdoctoral NIH-NRSA supported trainees are eligible to  receive $2,500 per budget period for childcare costs provided by a  licensed childcare provider. For households where both parents are eligible full-time predoctoral or postdoctoral NRSA trainees, each parent is eligible to receive $2,500.
  • Guidance on Salary Limitation for Grants and Cooperative Agreements This Notice provides information regarding the salary limitation for NIH grant and cooperative agreement awards and extramural research and development contract awards. Since 1990, Congress has legislatively mandated a limitation on direct salary for individuals under NIH grant and cooperative agreement awards (referred to here as a grant). The mandate appears in the annual appropriation act that provides authority for NIH to incur obligations for a given Fiscal Year (FY). At this time, NIH has not received an FY 2022 appropriation and is operating under a Continuing Resolution, the "Continuing Appropriations Act, 2022" (Public Law 117-70), that applies the terms and conditions of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021.
  • Notice for the NIGMS Grant Writing Webinar Series for Institutions Building Research and Research Training Capacity The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) will host an informational webinar series for faculty and sponsored programs/research development personnel from institutions building research and research training capacity. During the webinars, suggestions will be shared for navigating the process of seeking NIH funding. Attendees will learn considerations for determining research idea and grant writing readiness, selecting opportunities to apply for, effectively writing a grant application, and seeking appropriate feedback. Registration is required to attend.
