The 2017 Grant Resubmission Awards have closed. Awardee announcements will be made soon. 

About the Awards:

Do you have a proposal with a near-fundable score? Get the funds you need to improve the proposal for resubmission with Advance-CTR's Grant Resubmission Awards. The award funds are meant to be a modest and narrowly targeted investment that could make a significant difference in the success of a specific proposal for resubmission. 

Amount & Duration:

It is anticipated that four projects will be funded for up to $20,000 each (direct costs) until the date of resubmission to the original grant mechanism, up to one year maximum. Indirect costs associated with the direct costs of each budget will be provided to the home institution.


  • Any faculty member at a degree-granting institution in Rhode Island is eligible for award.
  • Investigators with other IDeA funding (e.g., COBRE, INBRE) that would temporally overlap with this award are not eligible.
  • Investigator must have received agency feedback on an application within the past two years from NIH, NSF or another agency or foundation.
  • Regulatory approvals (e.g. IRB, IACUC) must be obtained by September 15, 2017. 

See the RFA for specific agency conditions and complete eligibility requirements. 

Dates & Deadlines: 

Applications are due on August 30, 2017 by 5 p.m. ET. Regulatory approvals (e.g. IRB, IACUC) must be obtained by September 15, 2017.  Funding is anticipated to begin November 1, 2017.
