Resource Allocation Program (RAP)

Seeding outstanding research


How RAP Works: 

  1. RAP is a consortium of UCSF funders
  2. Applicants select the grant mechanism, not the funding agency; funding agencies select the awardees
  3. Consideration by multiple agencies enhances funding likelihood
  4. RAP does not control the $$$ nor topic areas that are funded

3 Easy Steps to Apply

  1. Find the grant mechanism that is the best fit for you 
  2. Write the grant proposal for the chosen mechanism following the grant-specific instructions
  3. Submit your grant proposal via the RAP PORTAL
