Research Management Group (RMG)

Limited Submission Programs

This webpage contains an overview of the external limited submission programs (NIH, NSF, foundation and association).


What is a limited submission program?
Limited programs are external sponsored research grants that require an internal selection process because the sponsor limits the number of applications that can be submitted by Stanford. The limited submission programs are facilitated by Jeanne Heschele on behalf of the Vice Provost and Dean of Research Office and the School of Medicine Research Management Group (RMG).
Please contact Jeanne at jheschele@stanford.edu for any questions about these programs.

Programs are arranged in chronological order by internal deadline.

 

The Archer Foundation
Archer Award in Brain Research

Limited to two applications
Up to $100K/yr for up to 3 years ($300K total)
Eligibility: faculty with PI eligibility. The award will be made to a scientific team that has demonstrated superior quality of scientific research in the field of neuroscience
Topic: Early Molecular Measurements of Neurodegenerative Disease/Cognitive Decline;
Focus area: The Archer Award is intended to foster research at the interface of basic science and technology development and to advance the development and application of innovative diagnostic methods in neurodegenerative disease(s).
**REVISED: Update from the sponsor: "the primary intent of the Archer Award is not to fund basic research on the brain, nor to fund potential therapies for neurodegenerative disorders, but rather to promote the development of potentially commercial markers of neurodegenerative disease progression in humans”.
Therefore, the "Project approach/Innovation” section in the internal submission guidelines** has been changed.
Internal SNI deadline EXTENDED: Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 12 noon
