VISN 10 Research Initiative Program for VA Investigators

The VISN 10 Research Initiative Program (RIP) is intended to provide seed money of up to $10,000 for VA investigators (at least 5/8 VA FTE) to develop preliminary data that would lead to submission of competitive VA research proposals.

Highest priority is for new investigators. Required forms, instructions and checklist are available from Ava Jean Fiebig, program analyst, Research Service, Cincinnati VA Medical Center. The internal deadline for budget review, biosketches, other support, and draft specific aims is Tuesday, June 10, 2014.

If you are interested in submitting or have questions, please contact Ms. Fiebig directly.
