Faculty Pilot Grant Program


The Emory Center for Injury Control’s multi-disciplinary Faculty Pilot Grant Program facilitates and promotes innovative, preliminary, and interdisciplinary research activities to yield future high-impact injury prevention research. In our last year of the current funding cycle, we have decided to allocate our limited funds for those faculty members and researchers who have worked with us on their research projects. The goal is to move existing projects and near final proposals to grant submission and to provide resources that may facilitate the completion of the proposal.

This call for proposals is considered a limited submission to those meeting 1 or more of the following 4 criteria:

  1. Researchers who had a proposal reviewed and considered for our ECIC CDC Grant Renewal but which was not included in the final proposal.
  2. Researchers who had a small or large grant proposal funded as part of the currently funded ECIC CDC grant.
  3. Researchers who have had a previous and successfully completed pilot grant.
  4. Researchers who are planning a new grant for which the proposal will include shared resources with the ECIC administrative structure or in which the ECIC will have a substantial role (please discuss with ECIC leadership).



Electronic Proposals are due by November 15, 2013 to Deputy Director of the ECIC, Shakiyla Smith.  See RFA below for specifics.
