Research Starter Grants offer financial support to individuals beginning independent research careers at the faculty level. This program provides a research grant of $100,000 for one year.  Research Starter Grants support individuals in academia who do not have other substantial sources of research funding. Applicants will be judged on the scientific merit of the proposed research, and on the degree of financial need.  The “starter” aspect of the program strives to assist individuals who are establishing careers as independent investigators. The program is not offered as a means to augment an ongoing research effort. Funds may not be used for salary support.
