UNL Office of Research and Economic Development
Biomedical Research Seed Grants
http://research.unl.edu/internal-funding-opportunities/

The goal of this program is to enhance the competitiveness of faculty submitting grant proposals requesting R01 support for biomedical research funding from NIH. Evidence of prior work or preliminary data is a necessary component of most biomedical research proposals. Investigators are expected to leverage seed funding to accumulate evidence in support of a working hypothesis; demonstrate the feasibility of a new approach; or build reviewers’ confidence in the project team’s ability to handle cutting-edge technologies, understand methods, and interpret results.

Applications are due May 1, 2014 and November 3, 2014.

UNL Office of Research and Economic Development
Revision Awards
http://research.unl.edu/internal-funding-opportunities/

This program is designed to enhance the competitiveness of faculty revising and resubmitting grant proposals by providing developmental and/or financial support to help improve highly meritorious, but previously unfunded federal funding proposals that are eligible for resubmission. Revision Awards will provide dedicated technical and research administration assistance and, in cases where additional data collection or prior work is critical, financial resources to support further preliminary study.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
