Pilot and Feasibility Funds

The Call for Pilot and Feasibility Project Applications has been completed. Please check back in the Fall of 2023 for new opportunities.

The goal of the Pilot & Feasibility Program is to advance the research agenda of the HWRN by funding small pilot projects that foster the development of significant and innovative research by members of the Network and their collaborators.

The HWRN’s Pilot & Feasibility program provides funding (direct costs only) for 1- or 2-year pilot research projects. Applicants may apply for either one year (up to $35,000) or two years of funding (up to $25,000/year, for a total of $50,000).

Members and Associate Members are eligible to apply for pilot & feasibility funds.

If you are interested in becoming an Associate Member, please send your resume or CV to hwrn@umassmed.edu for approval.
