Other Intramural Competitions

Below is a list of intramural funding competitions that are administered by other offices on campus:

Duke Energy Renewables Innovation Fund Grant Competition

With funds provided by Duke Energy Renewables, Inc. (DER), the GW Sustainability Collaborative announces the third annual competition for interdisciplinary teams of GW faculty to compete for research funding. The total funds available are $85,000 and the number of awards will depend on the quality of the applications. The projects should focus on energy research in some way. All energy topics are possible, including those that affect the climate, water, food, and cities either directly or indirectly. Faculty are encouraged to contact Sustainability Collaborative Research Director Robert Orttung ([email protected]) to discuss possible proposal topics to be sure that they are appropriate for this competition.

Shapiro Policy Research Scholar Program

As part of its effort to facilitate policy research by GW faculty, the GW Institute of Public Policy (GWIPP) sponsors the Shapiro Policy Research Scholar program (formerly the Policy Research Scholar program). The competition is now held twice annually in December and June and is open to all GW tenure-track, tenured, and full-time contract faculty. The program provides Policy Research Scholars with significant resources to enable them to prepare and submit proposals for external funding.

Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children's National (CTSI-CN)

The Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children's National (CTSI-CN) is a collaboration between the George Washington University and Children’s National Health System that provides a number of funding opportunities to faculty affiliated with either institution. Proposals that utilize CTSI-CN resource(s) and are relevant to the following CTSI-CN themes will receive highest priority: 1) health of children and families; 2) rare genetic diseases; 3) novel devices for pediatric care; and 4) disorders across the lifespan.

Currently, the CTSI-CN offers three funding mechanisms:

  1. Mentored Career Development Awards (KL2 Program);
  2. Pilot Project Awards (Discovery, Translational Acceleration, and Community Engagement); and 
  3. Vouchers.

KL2 and Pilot awards are offered annually. Vouchers are awarded quarterly. All funding is intended to generate preliminary data and/or publications so that investigators are primed to seek extramural funding and build sustainable careers in clinical and translational research.
