Grants and Funding Opportunities

Limited submission Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation
October 10, 2022
 

Limited submission opportunities are those for which the agencies restrict the number of proposals or nomination a university may submit for consideration for an award. Extra submissions can result in rejection of all submitted by the institution. Therefore, all eligible and interested nominees must be internally screened to determine which will represent the university in the agency’s competition. This application is for the nomination from our institution.

Internal Submission Deadline: Thursday, October 20, 2022

Research Grants

DRWF accepts research applications related to finding the cause, prevention, treatment, and cure of diabetes and its complications. The maximum support of these grants is up to $50,000 per year for up to 2 years. If the proposed research is within an area of primary interest and is judged as having high scientific merit by the Foundation’s advisors, the Board of Directors may make special grant awards that exceed the stated maximum. Currently, the Foundation’s area of primary interest and focus are islet cell transplantation, macrovascular disease & neuropathy. All other research proposals will not be reviewed.

Research proposals are evaluated along the following parameters:

  • Relevance to the DRWF mission
  • Scientific merit
  • Qualifications and experience of the investigators

For each competition, principal investigators are required to submit a limited submission pre-proposal by the internal deadline specified in the announcement. The pre-proposal should address the sponsoring agency’s priorities as outlined in the announcement.

The pre-proposal should be no more than 3 pages in length in 11-point font with 0.5″ margins and must contain the following information:

  • Proposal title
  • Principal Investigator and Co-Principal Investigator(s), Department and College
  • Proposed start date and duration of the project
  • Estimated (total) budget for the entire performance period
  • Summary of the project (main body of the document)

The limited submission committee will convene to review the pre-proposals following review guidelines. The committee will provide a recommendation to the Vice President of Research who makes the final decision regarding the internal competition
