The purpose of these awards is to launch innovative projects that have great potential to advance science and benefit society in ways that have major and lasting impact. Projects that are too risky and early stage to be appropriate for NIH or similar funding mechanism are strongly favored. The Carney Institute will invest up to $100,000 per project for one year, renewable for a second year on a competitive basis, to support projects that meet these criteria.
