Pilot Study Grant Program funds are available annually to provide modest research support for specific projects for faculty members and their co-investigators. The proposal must include one or more faculty investigator(s) from a health-related school (i.e., Nursing, Pharmacy, or Social Work) who fully contribute to the development and implementation of the study as well as interpretation of its findings. The principal investigator must be a fulltime tenured or tenure-track faculty at The University of Texas at Austin. Priority is given to new researchers and established investigators moving in a distinctly new direction and to projects that can be completed in one year.
