Competitive Grant Programs
Overview of Competitive Grant Program
Competitive grant programs are a type of IIR which many teams choose to initiate in addition to or in place of their standard IIR program. Competitive programs typically have a defined set of research criteria, which are broadly publicized to an appropriate investigator group through one of several possible routes (i.e. journal advertisements, program websites, flyer distribution). There is a defined application window and specific document requirements which are defined by each program. Once submitted, all applications are reviewed by an external review panel of experts, who select the best research for funding.
