The Cognitive Neuroscience of Development and Aging Center (CONDA Center) at UNMC has two new funding opportunities: one available to faculty members and one available to graduate students and postdocs.
These funding opportunities are only available to faculty, graduate students, and postdocs at UNO, UNMC, Creighton, and Boys Town.
The goal of the Pilot Projects Program (submission form in the link) is to provide support to emerging scholars in this area by enabling them to pursue promising new research directions and acquire the preliminary data necessary to apply for and obtain external federal funding. Successful applicants will receive up to $50,000 in direct costs per year for 1-2 years, as well as access to the resources and equipment of the Center for professional development and project support. We anticipate funding several Pilot Projects through this RFA in 2020-2021.
The goal of the Mini Grants Program (submission form in the link) is to provide support to promising research projects led by graduate students and post-doctoral research associates. The main goals of the program are to enhance graduate student and postdoctoral research projects across the Omaha academic community. Total budgets should range from $5,000 to a maximum of $20,000 and we anticipate funding several mini grants in 2020.
Questions can be directed to Melissa Welch-Lazoritz, MA, Center Administrator at the CONDA Center at 712.490.7910 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
