Applications for the 2013-2014 Presidential Bridge Funding program will be due May 17, 2013. Bridge funding is available for independent established investigators at OHSU threatened by an imminent lapse in research support. Investigators can request up to $50,000 in funding for one year to help bridge them while they generate data to restore funding.
Up to 10 awards will be made this funding cycle. Awards will be made only to OHSU investigators. The PI must be an independent scientist. Independence is defined by: rank at the level of assistant professor or above; committed institutional support such as space and salary; a track record of first authored or senior authored publications; a recent history of federal (or similar) funding; and imminently planned or pending application for funding on a national level. Postdoctoral fellows and similar trainees are not eligible to apply.
Please access the guidelines and application forms for complete details. Applications are due Friday, May 17, 2013 and must be submitted electronically to the Research Funding & Development Services. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (503) 494-1085.
