Intramural Funding

Intramural funding opportunities are supported within the University of Utah and cater to University of Utah faculty looking for support on advanced or preliminary research projects. This includes seed and engine funding as well as specific challenges, initiatives and fellowships offered by various department, colleges or research units.


Faculty Scholarly Grant Program 
Deadline: March 15th, 2020  

Program Purpose 

The Faculty Small Grant Program (FSGP) seeks to support significant research and creative scholarly projects in colleges where extramural funding is difficult to obtain. This program will provide faculty with grants up to $6,000 for a period of two years to support scholarly projects and publications. In exceptional circumstances the committee may elect to support an outstanding proposal at a higher level of funding. Proposals are evaluated on their significance, soundness, competence and merits.

Center on Aging Pilot Grants 
Deadline: April 2, 2020    

The Center on Aging sponsors an annual pilot grant program to promote the development of aging research at the University of Utah. The goal of this program is to encourage new investigator career development, attract established investigators to aging research, and stimulate interdisciplinary research collaborations – ultimately leading to new externally funded research. We especially encourage applications from two or more investigators (ideally from two or more colleges) who are establishing an interdisciplinary research collaboration in an aging-related interest area.    

Please contact either Dr. Mark Supiano or Heather Podolan with questions.

Innovations in Aging Research 
Deadline: May 18, 2020   

This “Innovations in Aging Research” Request for Proposals (RFP) differs from the "traditional" pilot grant program (described above) the CoA has sponsored since 2016. The CoA leadership recognizes that today there are unprecedented opportunities to advance aging research, and that these advances will most likely be driven by new, interprofessional collaborations in team-based approaches. Moreover, the target of this RFP is to reach beyond a single investigator-initiated award by supporting the development of larger, multi-investigator projects based on a thematic area. The goal of this program is to promote collaborations and provide funding support to enhance preliminary/project data that will allow competitive applications for multi-PI extramural funding by the NIH or other agencies and foundations, such as multi-PI R01s and P01s and center grants (P30, P60 and others). We invite applications from all areas of collaborative aging research that will lead to competitive extramural multi-PI grant applications. 

Please contact Dr. Mark Supiano or Heather Podolan with questions.
