Pilot Project Grants and Vouchers

 

Pilot Project Grants

Vouchers

Vouchers for the MARC Resource Cores will be available to MARC members who need funding for experiments critical to gathering preliminary data for grant proposals. These vouchers will be awarded on an ongoing basis by the MARC Administrative Core, and will be offered in increments of $1,000, $2,500, and $5,000. Members may apply for these vouchers by sending a paragraph describing the services needed to the MARC Coordinator at marcadmin@ucsd.edu. The application will be reviewed by both the MARC Associate Director and the leadership of the Core whose service is covered by the voucher, and the decision will be passed back on to the applicant by the MARC Coordinator. Special priority will be given by the reviewers to new NIH investigators (as defined by the NIH) and to those investigators who are applying for support as part of an interdisciplinary collaboration.
 
Applicants who are awarded vouchers will be asked for a brief progress report on the outcome of their voucher usage.

If you have any questions regarding vouchers or the application process, please e-mail the MARC Coordinator at marcadmin@ucsd.edu.
