Pilot Grants for Faculty

Pilot Grants for Faculty

The SUPRA Pilot Grants invest resources in faculty-led substance use pilot projects. Ideally, these pilot projects will increase the competitiveness of extramural applications, and expand UK’s federal substance use research portfolio. Pilot projects must align with SUPRA’s mission and support innovative, collaborative substance use research from a basic science, clinical, or community research perspective. Requests for Applications (RFAs) will be released every 12 to 18 months.
