The School of Social Work Pilot Grant program seeks strong scientific proposals from U-M School of Social Work faculty of all ranks, including U-M SSW postdoctoral fellows. We especially encourage junior faculty to apply. Please remember that the Research Office administers over a research consultation program that provides feedback to investigators on projects at every stage in the research process.
Awards are given to strong scientific proposals that identify a need for preliminary data that will lead to the submission of larger, external grant proposals. Proposals are accepted on an ongoing, first-come first-served basis from July 1- June 30. During this time, we are able to fund up to three pilot projects per year. We encourage investigators to seek matches with UMOR, MICHR or MCubed. The upper limit amount awarded to any pilot project is $15,000. The principal investigator must be a U-M SSW faculty member.
