PISC Trainee & Early-Stage Faculty Pilot Grant Program
From the Penn Injury Science Center
The Penn Injury Science Center (PISC) typically provides funding for (2) pilot grants proposals annually, for projects up to $10,000 each, though available funding may vary from year to year.
Pilot projects are expected to support PISC’s mission to reduce injuries and violence and their sequelae through the highest caliber science. Applicants are encouraged to demonstrate a rigorous approach to solve an important scientific problem in injury science and that contributes to building their research program. We accept applications using a Principal Investigator (PI) or multiple Principal Investigator (MPI) mechanism.
PISC Exploratory Grant Program for Penn Faculty
The Penn Injury Science Center (PISC) invites yearly proposals for our CDC-funded Exploratory Grants Program and typically funds one project per year around $15,000-20,000 in direct costs, though available funding may vary from year to year.
The purpose of this program is to support Penn faculty in conducting a rigorous study to serve as the basis to seek long-term extramural funding to grow their area of science. The PI or all MPIs must be a member of the standing or research faculty of Penn.
Exploratory projects are expected to support the mission of PISC – which is to reduce injuries and violence through the highest caliber science. Applicants are encouraged to include more than one discipline and to demonstrate a rigorous approach to solve an important scientific problem in injury science.
LDI Funding for Health Research-Focused Events at Penn
The Leonard Davis Institute is seeking proposals to fund working groups or other convenings at Penn that will help catalyze and support new research across Penn’s health policy and health services research community. They are accepting applications from LDI Senior Fellows on a rolling basis, with preference given to proposals that include the involvement of Senior Fellows who are junior faculty and bring together Senior Fellows from across schools and disciplines. Proposals should seek to develop sustained new collaborations or lines of inquiry at Penn or develop new partnerships or collaborations for research outside of Penn.
Funds of up to $10,000 are available, although lower-budget proposals are more likely to be funded. Funds may be combined with other sources of funding.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Apply here.
