The Exploration Grants program provides quick access to funding for researchers. Applicants may request up to $10,000 in direct costs for a period not to exceed 12 months.
Funds can be used to support a broad range of activities including:
- Pilot data to complete an initial but unfunded project.
- Pilot data needed for preliminary results.
- New direction on a current project not otherwise supported.
- Funded projects that did not build costs into budgets for services previously free or subsidized that now carry a cost.
