The Center Launch program provides seed funding to support teams of UC San Diego scholars in their efforts to pursue new large-scale, extramural funding.
The Office of Research Affairs (ORA) invites applications for one-time, non-renewable seed funding for planning and development activities leading to the submission of proposals for major extramural research support.
Awardees are expected to submit at least one proposal for major, external funding. Commitments to develop proposals to specific, large-budget funding opportunities will be prioritized in the 2017-18 competition. Applications involving co-investigators from other research institutions and multiple UC San Diego VC areas, i.e., General Campus, Health Sciences and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, are encouraged but not required.
ORA intends to make up to three smaller ($20-30K) and up to three larger (up to $75K) awards for AY2017-2018.
The deadline for application for this funding opportunity is October 12, 2017, with funding to be available in December 2017. Detailed information on the application and selection process, eligibility, and requirements will be available on the following web page: http://blink.ucsd.edu/sponsor/ora/awards-funding/centerlaunch.html
