Anne McMains, ACRI Grant Development Specialist
Maximum Grant Amount
The Arkansas Children's Research Institute accepts letters of intent to the Investigator-Initiated Research Grant (IIRG) annually.
Funding is intended to encourage exploratory/developmental research by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of project development. Grant applications must focus upon novel, original research that is directly relevant to the development and/or health of infants, children, or adolescents.
Eligible candidates must have an academic faculty appointment in the UAMS College of Medicine, Pharmacy, Public Health or Nursing conducting pediatric research. Additionally, they must be fulltime employees of ACH, ACRI, or UAMS.
Investigators that have active research support through an ACRI/ABI funded component (ABI Program Funds, or Recruitment Funds) are not considered eligible for support from this funding mechanism.
Priority will be given to applications that demonstrate a clear benefit to children and the academic reputation of both the investigator, UAMS, and Arkansas Children’s.
Priority will also be given to new investigators, investigators who have not previously received grant support from ABI funds, proposals which require collaborations across scientific disciplines, and investigators, based on their record of scholarly achievement, have a high probability of success in acquiring extramural research support.
Letters of intent are due by June 1
Applications are due by August 1
