The Office of the Senior Vice President for Research has released its call for proposals for the 2015-2016 OHSU Presidential Bridge Funding Program. Bridge funding is available for established investigators 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 3 awards will be made this funding cycle (summer 2015) with another 3 awards made in winter.
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.
Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 29, 2015. Please note, the submission process has changed – applications will now be submitted online via InfoReady Review. View guidelines and instructions here.
