Grants

Young Investigator Grants

TWO YEARS | $125,000

This grant is meant for those at an early stage in their research career to help provide seed funding for the research required to apply for larger, longer term grants, often with the NIH. (To secure federal funding, a researcher must prove a theory works; BCA creates the critical bridge between novel research and the opportunity to generate preliminary results.) Clinical doctors and research scientists at institutions in the contiguous United States who, following completion of their training, will not have held a faculty position for more than four years at the start date of the grant, are invited to apply. 

BCA will accept a maximum of 2 YIG LOIs per institution. Interested applicants from within Duke should contact fundopps@duke.edu as early as possible.

Deadline for Required LOI: March 31, 2024
