How to Apply
Grant Extensions

The REAC Grant     

One-year research and shared-equipment grants are awarded by the Dean from endowment funds given to the School of Medicine.

Applications are now submitted through the Research Allocation Program (RAP). Please visit the RAP website for more information about the application process.

The Research Evaluation and Allocation Committee (REAC) will fund research applications for a one year period for pilot projects, hardship supplements, shared instrument proposals and support of other research important to this campus. At the recommendation of this committee, the dean will make awards from endowment funds donated for medical research. The committee encourages new and junior faculty to apply who have achieved independent status and who show need for funds to initiate and develop their own research before extramural support is available. 


School of Medicine Faculty in the ladder rank, in-residence, adjunct, or clinical series, and Appointees in the Professional Research series. All applicants must be salaried at 50 percent or more time. Please see the FAQ page for specific examples.

April - May, 2013

June, 2013

Although there is no formal limit to budget requests, the committee discourages research applications requiring budgets greater than $30,000.  Requests above that amount should include specific justification.

Applicants are requested to comment in their budget justification whether the proposed study overlaps in any way with current or pending applications. Co-funding with other agencies is considered for non-overlapping budgets. All budgets must be justified.

REAC, working with the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI), is encouraging applications in the area of clinical and translational research. Clinical research includes trials and studies in human subjects. Proposals in all types of translational research are encouraged.
