The program supports new research projects that have not been previously submitted for external funding but are targeted for submission to a specific agency and whose likelihood of funding would increase with the acquisition of data or proof of concept. The deadline for the next round of funding is Friday, April 1. More information and application available online.
  • Want to apply for a grant but need a statistician on your team? The Indiana Statistical Consulting Center supports IU faculty, staff and graduate students by helping with the planning phase, writing the methodological portion of grant proposals, carrying out the proposed analysis and writing up results once the grant is funded. Collaborators will meet free of charge with the agreement that their efforts will be compensated by the grant if funded. More information is available online.
