Two $5,000 grant awards are awarded by the faculty practice committee. The grant applications for this year were due March 2, 2015.
The purpose of the Clinical Faculty Grant is to encourage and support clinical faculty in the School of Health Professions and School of Nursing to engage in scholarly projects that reflect clinical practice needs. This grant is intended for clinical faculty with limited research experience.
Applicants are highly encouraged to seek guidance from a mentor. Proposed projects should focus on clinical problems of interest. Three types of projects are considered:
A total of $10,000 is available for research support starting July 1. Funds may awarded as a single award or multiple smaller awards. Therefore, applications of any amount (up to $10,000) will be considered. All full-time and part-time KU School of Health Professions faculty members are eligible for funding.
Preference is given to proposals with a strong potential for external funding. Evidence of such potential include, but are not limited to, the following: pink sheets from proposals submitted and receiving good scores (but were not funded); history of previous funding (not limited to KU Medical Center history); evidence of completion of research projects (e.g. published work). The proposal should include a plan for external funding.
