Funding Opportunities

The National Center of Neuromodulation for Rehabilitation offers several funding mechanisms to foster research into neuromodulatory methods and technology.

The Pilot Project Funding Program supports rehabilitation neuroscience research that utilizes neuromodulatory methods/technologies. The funded projects must represent a new direction for the PI and/or an innovative application of neuromodulatory methods/technologies. Our goal is to promote the growth of research in rehabilitation neuroscience that utilizes neuromodulatory techniques and methodologies by providing NM4R research resources and expertise towards the development of potential new projects that will be fundable and sustainable through extramural funding mechanisms. This mechanism will fund four pilot grants per year for up to $37,500 for a 12-month period. Further, for ongoing Pilot Projects which develop new aims or require an expanded scope, a small Supplemental Funding award may be granted. 

The Collaborative Opportunities Funding Program helps investigators overcome potential barriers in successful pilot data collection for clear, well-designed NM4R studies that have been developed through collaboration between the applicants and the NC NM4R. This program is for providing immediate funding for groups that have established through collaboration with NM4R investigators that they have a scientifically meritorious, innovative research program that needs a small amount of budget for covering operational cost (e.g., subject remuneration, supplies). This mechanism will provide up to $7,500 of short-term (a 6-month period) funding for up to 4 collaborative opportunities proposals per year.
