Fall 2019 Funding Cycle Results are NOW available on your RAP PORTAL DASHBOARD

New Supplements:

  • RDO RAP Diversity Supplement: projects led (PI1 or PI2) by an under-represented minority (URM) investigator or including URM populations or biospecimens are eligible for the new RDO RAP Diversity Supplement which provides $2,000-$5,000 for up to five applications per cycle that score well and are funded through RAP.
  • RAP Community Partnership Supplement: the UCSF School of Medicine's (SOM) Strategic Plan Action Group on Community Partnerships is supporting a pilot of a RAP Community Partnership Supplement, where a SOM PI1 or PI2 can propose a community engagement component to their RAP research proposal.  Two eligible awarded RAP applications will be selected to receive an additional $15,000 (at least half the funding needs to be dedicated to the community partner), based on evaluation of their community engagement component by the Community Partnerships Team. This component can be optionally added as a section in the proposal portion of your RAP application.
