Funding Opportunities

ICTR continually updates the pilot awards program to include new initiatives and funding opportunities, including our Novel Methods Pilot Award and Supplements for Dissemination activities. Below is information about our current award programs. The ICTR Pilot Awards Program incorporates the T0 to T4 research classifications. Targeted research areas will continue to include basic discovery research, patient-based clinical research, patient-centered outcomes research, dissemination and implementation research, and community engaged research.

We also offer four career development awards, the KL2 Scholars Program, the TL1 Postdoctoral Training Program, the TL1 Predoctoral Training Program, and the AHEAD Pilot Awards Program. More information about those awards can be found here.
