Grants of $225,000 covering up to three years of research activity are funded with the intent to provide independent research opportunities to promising and talented early-career investigators. The goal is that successful projects will lead to independent research, thus making investigators competitive for major awards from federal agencies and private foundations.
On an annual basis, the Foundation will announce the establishment of pre-allocated amounts to:
- University of Colorado System
- Colorado State University
- National Jewish Health
- A pool from which other eligible Colorado institutions may apply include Bonfils Blood Center, Colorado College, Colorado School of Mines, Craig Hospital, Colorado Mesa University, Metropolitan State University of Denver, Regis University, University of Denver and University of Northern Colorado.
In order to guarantee the excellence and quality of funded programs, each institution manages a competitive internal process characterized by the time-honored peer review process. Investigators interested in applying should inquire with their institution’s research department to obtain more information about eligibility.
