Pilot/Feasibility Projects Program
Request for Proposals
$60,000 total available funds, maximum $20,000 per project
Release date: June 6, 2013
Letter of intent due date: August 12, 2013
Proposal due date: September 09, 2013
Pilot/feasibility projects are fundamental to sustaining the quality, breadth, and dynamics of the Center program. These projects can lead to the development of new and creative research, prevention, intervention, outreach, education, evaluation, or translation findings and outcomes. They can explore new activities or directions, or take advantage of special opportunities.
Pilot project duration is limited to 18 months and funding is limited to $20K per project. Pilot projects are primarily intended to assist investigators to obtain pilot data that can be used in pursuing support through other funding mechanisms. Examples of pilot or feasibility project activities include:
• Initial support for developing novel, innovative, cutting-edge research, translation, prevention, intervention, education, or outreach approaches;
• Adapting and evaluating proven prevention, intervention, outreach, or education tools or techniques for new populations, work environments, or delivery systems;
• Obtaining preliminary data, mining existing state or national datasets, or pursuing critical data gaps;
• Supporting investigators from other fields of study to apply their expertise to agriculture safety and health challenges;
• Developing new mechanisms for external or multicenter collaborative partnerships to address emerging agriculture safety and health concerns; and
• Exploring new directions that represent significant departures from established approaches yet have the potential to yield great impacts.
Faculty, staff, students, and individuals with an interest in agricultural health and safety and the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed project are invited to develop an application. Eligible institutions include for-profit, nonprofit, public, or private institutions; units of local or state government and eligible Federal agencies; units of local and state tribal government; and faith- or community-based organizations. Trainees are encouraged to apply together with more senior researchers or faculty members. Junior researchers at early career stages are encouraged to apply. Women and individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, as well as individuals with disabilities, are especially encouraged to apply.
