Current Call for Applications

In order to promote stronger research collaborations across our Mountain West Research Universities, please click on this link for a new funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to support pilot funding for Multi-Site Research Projects (MSRP) during Year 5. These will be larger than the typical single investigator pilot awards and may only be applicable to a smaller pool of  faculty that have already engaged in discussions with other investigators in the CTR-IN network. 

Only one application per institution will be accepted. It is possible, and encouraged, that each institution could partner on more than one application, but each institution will be restricted to submitting one application as the Lead Institution.
