Bridge and Seed Funding Grant Programs 2020-2021 Competition

Deadlines for the competition have expired!  Keep checking back for updates on future competitions.

Two 2020-2021 Intramural Research Grant initiatives provided by Touro College and University have been announced: Bridge Funding Grant Program and Seed Funding Grant Program.  Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, only a single competition will be held this year for both types of awards.

These programs were established following from 2012 recommendations of the Research Advancement Task Force to increase basic and clinical research in the biomedical and health sciences throughout the Touro College and University system.

The Bridge Funding Grant Program aims to improve the likelihood of securing renewed funding for projects that were previously funded and which have received solid priority scores for the renewal proposal last submitted to the sponsor. 

  • The deadline date for submission of a Bridge Funding Grant Program application is December 14, 2020.  Expired
  • Program guidelines, instructions, and application forms for the Bridge Funding Grants Program are available at the Touro College and University System research website.

The Seed Funding Grant Program is designed to encourage collaboration and interdisciplinary research between and among faculty, colleges, and campuses throughout the Touro College and University System. 

  • The deadline date for submission of a Seed Funding Grant Program application is December 21, 2020.  Expired
  • Program guidelines, instructions, and application forms for the Seed Funding Grants Program are available at the Touro College and University System research website.

The final review of proposals and determination of award recommendations to President Kadish are conducted by the Touro College and University System Biomedical and Health Sciences Research Council, which oversees both programs.
