SOM Faculty Research and Development Awards

November 20, 2014 by School of Medicine Webmaster

Support for the Research and Development Awards is from the Office of the Dean, UVA School of Medicine. The Research and Development Committee is responsible for awarding local funds to support small research projects to individuals holding primary faculty status in the School of Medicine. Specifically, the R&D Awards are to support faculty to generate preliminary data leading to an application for external support of the projects. Awards are typically in the range of $20,000 – $30,000 for one year and are non-renewable. Although not a requirement, co-support of the project by the applicant’s department is viewed favorably (please document in a brief letter from the chair as a component of the application). Funds cannot be used for the support of travel, faculty salaries, or office supplies/office computers.

The application form and instructions can be accessed at the Office for Research. Applications should be submitted electronically as a single PDF file to Ms. Julie Burns (

Deadline: December 1, 2014 at 5:00 PM.
