Research & Equipment Grants
Medical School grants
Research and equipment grants are awarded to Medical School faculty for basic and clinical research. Priority is given to startup funding for new faculty, bridge funding during lapse of an NIH R01 or similar type grant, and equipment funding.
Historically, more than 40 percent of all grant recipients have been able to use the data they have gathered—and the conclusions they have drawn from that data—to leverage substantially larger awards from other sources, such as the NIH and NSF. It has not been uncommon for a University of Minnesota Foundation grant of $15,000 or less to produce data that eventually generate a $1 million award. And approximately 45 percent of all grant recipients publish the results of their investigations.
Assistant Professor Startup Funding and Equipment Funding grant applications are received two times per year: March 15 and September 15. NEW: Applications for Bridge Funding now have four deadlines per year: March 15, June 15, September 15 and December 15.
Electronically submit all application and attachments as one Adobe PDF document, total file not to exceed 16 pages, to firstname.lastname@example.org. View our grant guidelines, and submit applications using the grant application form.
