If you would like to be added to the monthly internal funding opportunity announcement listserv, please contact RDT.


Funding Sponsor Program Title Max Amount of Award Due Date Notification Date
Brady Urological Institute Schaufeld Program for Prostate Cancer in Black Men $100,000 August 15, 2021 TBD
The Schaufeld Program for Prostate Cancer in Black Men is an exciting new initiative from the Brady Urological Institute at Johns Hopkins which will combine scientific inquiry, education and community engagement to reduce the burden of prostate cancer on men of African ancestry. One year pilot awards of $100,000 will made available through the Schaufeld Program to support cutting-edge multidisciplinary scientific research on prostate cancer arising in Black men.  Applications examining the role of genomics, epigenomics, or microbiota/immune system/tumor interactions are particularly encouraged, as are imaging and population-science-based initiatives. Research may support the development of new and better methods for prostate cancer detection and treatment, with a specific focus on men of African ancestry.  Projects aimed at generating preliminary data for external grant funding applications will be prioritized. Funding is open to all JHU-affiliated faculty. For those without a track record of prostate cancer research, partnership with a prostate cancer-focused faculty member is highly encouraged.
Eligibility:  All JHU-affiliated faculty.


The Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center Developmental Research Program (Pilot Projects) $50,000 September 3, 2021 TBD
The Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center at Johns Hopkins is pleased to announce that funding is available for a limited number of novel developmental research programs (pilot projects) in the study of adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. This program funds important new pilot projects with promising translational potential that do not have sufficient data for an independently funded NIH grant. Projects of high priority should focus on new research directions, explore innovative ideas, test unconventional, but potentially important, new hypotheses, or ascertain the feasibility of new research approaches. Funds ($50,000 per year with the option of re-applying for a second year of funding) may be requested for the salaries of faculty, postdoctoral fellows or technicians, for equipment, and/or for consumable supplies.
Eligibility:  Applicants must hold an MD or PhD degree or both and must have a current academic appointment at Johns Hopkins University. Individuals with nontenure track positions should provide a letter from a tenure track faculty member describing their position and providing assurances of employment during the grant period.


Johns Hopkins University Older Americans Independence Center Small Pilot Projects $10,000 (direct costs) Rolling basis Rolling basis
The Johns Hopkins Older Americans Independence Center (OAIC) solicits proposals to support of scientific projects and junior investigators in research on frailty in aging. The OAIC is a Johns Hopkins-wide Center, funded by the National Institute on Aging’s Center on Aging and Health, to support the development of research on the etiology of frailty as a basis for developing treatments or approaches to prevention of frailty in older adults. Scientists with an interest in developing pilot projects in this area or with needs for support of biostatistical or genetic analyses of data related to frailty, as well as junior faculty seeking protected time to develop investigative careers in this field, are encouraged to apply for internal funding through the OAIC mechanisms. Small pilot proposals must have a hypothesis that is frailty-focused.
Eligibility:  Anyone may apply.
