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.

Fall 2019 – Proposals due 5:00pm on September 15, 2019

The SOM Imagine, Innovate and Impact (I3) Nexus Awards are soliciting proposals to spur interdisciplinary research projects that have the potential to impact health or generate biomedical knowledge.

  • The I3 Nexus Research Awards will provide seed money to fundamental biological and translational investigators for obtaining sufficient data to ultimately develop external collaborative funding applications, and to investigators who may not otherwise engage in multi- and interdisciplinary research. The goal is to take programs to the level at which extramural funding may be pursued. These awards require interdisciplinary team collaboration, with at least one collaborator outside of the home department/division (within the SOM) who brings a different discipline, expertise, or methodology to the project.

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 FY20 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. OFR raises the faculty profile with foundations by submitting thoughtful, strategic proposals and building strong, reciprocal relationships with funders. In addition to providing helpful insight about foundations and their grantmaking processes, OFR serves as an advocate for Emory faculty with potential funders.

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.
