Intramural Funding Opportunities at Emory

Emory Primary Care Consortium Grants

The Emory Primary Care Consortium provides up to $2,500 to support any project that involves research, quality improvement, advocacy, development of clinical decision support tools, or educational activities in support of advancements in primary care. Grant applications for 2019 due by April 18.    

SOM Imagine, Innovate, and Impact (I3) Awards

Innovation is the cornerstone of the emerging SOM Strategic Plan and is key to all three SOM missions: research, education, and clinical care. A key innovation strategy is to promote interdisciplinary and cross-departmental and -divisional research, i.e., collaborations at the boundaries of disciplines or research requiring input from scientists, clinicians, and/or educators in diverse disciplines. Problems in biology, medicine, and education today are often so complex that such approaches are necessary to tackle them successfully. Often novel insights emerge only when you juxtapose individuals with deep but disparate expertise around a common goal.

Spring 2019 – Proposals due 5:00pm on April 1st

The SOM Imagine, Innovate and Impact (I3) Venture Awards solicit innovative research proposals to catalyze promising early-stage concepts with commercial potential that do not yet qualify for funding from external sources. The I3 Venture Research Awards aim to cultivate inventors, innovators, and entrepreneurs driven to solve medicine’s challenges and create patient impact. In the current round, grants will be considered for:

  • Proposals with the potential to shape, de-risk, or scale up a potential new drug or technology in medicine (diagnostic, therapeutic, device or software) in less than one year. If successful, the proposal would ready the project for the next stage of translation (not necessarily to market readiness). Particularly creative ideas, even without preliminary data, will be considered provided compelling impact, feasibility and commercial potential is demonstrated.


Bridge Funding Program 

To assist investigators who have temporarily lost significant federal research funding, and to facilitate carefully planned changes in research direction, the School of Medicine has expanded its Bridge Funding Program. Bridge funding is available to investigators based on merit, potential for renewal of external funding, and availability of SOM funds. 

Applications for FY19 are due on December 15 and April 15. View eligibility criteria and application details. 

Emory Medical Care Foundation

The Emory Medical Care Foundation (EMCF) offers two different types of grants: research grants and service, education, and advocacy grants.

Proposals are due on February 1, June 1, and October 1 annually. View eligibility criteria and application details

The Office of Foundation Relations (OFR)

The Office of Foundation Relations (OFR) team builds partnerships across Emory's schools and units to increase foundation support for Emory University where mutual impact, interests and strengths align.

WHSC Synergy Awards

The Woodruff Health Sciences Center (WHSC) regularly announces cycles of the WHSC Synergy Awards to support new collaborative projects between the schools, centers, and faculty of the WHSC. The awards support the WHSC Strategic Plan by bringing researchers together across organizational boundaries in order to catalyze innovation and discovery.

Many Research Centers also offer pilot award programs.
