"One Application, Many Funding Opportunities, One Deadline"



How RAP Works

  • The applicants choose the grant mechanism that best fits their proposals
  • The funding agencies choose to fund the best proposals based on programmatic criteria



Funding Opportunities, What's New

  • The Academic Senate and REAC are sponsoring a new grant mechanism this cycle.  The new funding opportunity is called "Independence Support Award" and will support investigators that have not yet succeeded in getting an NIH R01 or similar funding
  • The Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC) is partnering with Kure It Cancer Research to provide a $200K Grant for Underfunded Cancer Research
  • The Post-Childbearing Award is now called "New Child Leave Award" and is available to male investigators and adoptive parents, as well as to childbearing women
