Internal Funding Opportunities

Research Council Grant Programs

The Wright State University Research Initiation and Professional Development Grant Programs are under the direction of the Research Council, which is composed of the deans and one faculty representative from each College/School. The Research Council is chaired by the Vice President for Research.

The competition is held on an annual basis during the Spring Semester. An announcement is sent out to the University faculty noting that the information and applications are posted on the Research and Sponsored Programs website.


Boonshoft School of Medicine (BSOM) Internal Funding Programs

Translational Research Development Grants

The purpose of the award is to provide a mechanism to link basic scientists with clinician-investigators, and to promote, cultivate and ultimately to establish innovative translational clinical research programs that have a high probability of attracting external funding after the award period and/or have potential for the generation of intellectual property and ultimately commercialization.

The Translational Research Development Grant Award Program is open to all Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine (and/or Wright State Physicians) fully-affiliated faculty members. Collaborating basic scientists may be faculty members within the School of Medicine or external to the School of Medicine (e.g., College of Engineering). Each proposal must identify at least one basic scientist and one clinician-investigator as Co- Principal Investigators. Under certain circumstances, partially-affiliated (i.e., voluntary) clinical faculty may be considered appropriate to serve as a Co-PI.

Bridge Grants

From time to time there may be a limited amount of funds available to provide Bridge Grants to highly productive investigators, with a strong track record of external grant funding, who find themselves in between grants. The purpose of these Bridge Grants is to provide the investigator with sufficient funds to allow work to continue in their laboratory in order to secure the next round of external grant funding. Specific application process and terms apply. Please contact the Office of Research Affairs (927-775-3018) to schedule a meeting to discuss the application process.
