Below are internal funding opportunities that have been submitted from centers and institutes across Johns Hopkins University. Please note that this may not be an all-inclusive list of internal opportunities. If you have an opportunity you would like us to publicize here and in the monthly digest email, please fill out this form by the last Wednesday of each month for inclusion in the following digest.

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
Center for Innovation in Graduate Biomedical Education Johns Hopkins-GlaxoSmithKline Scholars Program TBD after application review with GSK Rolling until program reaches capacity TBD
As part of our ongoing efforts to expand PhD training program driven by academia-industry collaboration, we are soliciting proposals from Johns Hopkins investigators interested in working with investigators at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Vaccines (Rockville, MD) to mentor JHU graduate students pursuing a Ph.D. degree in the biomedical sciences.
Eligibility: Johns Hopkins investigators affiliated with at least one Ph.D.-granting program at any of the schools of the Johns Hopkins University. Investigators who do not currently mentor graduate students are also encouraged to apply as long as they are eligible to mentor Ph.D. candidates. 


Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Institute Visiting Scientist Program $7,000 Rolling basis Rolling basis
The primary goal of the Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Institute (Kavli NDI) Visiting Scientist Program is to enrich research at JHU by supporting short-term visits by external scientists to JHU laboratories. The program will promote scholarly exchange and establish new collaborations between the visiting scholars and the JHU community. This call invites proposals from current faculty of JHU to invite a non-JHU affiliated scientist to spend a minimum of one week at JHU. JHU faculty host applicants should contact their prospective candidate visitor directly to develop their proposal prior to submitting an application. To increase impact, it is expected that the Kavli Visiting Scientist will interact with the broader JHU community during the visit, by presenting a seminar or hosting a workshop, and chairing a discussion group.
Eligibility:  The Kavli Visiting Scientist Program encourages applications from current full-time faculty members of Johns Hopkins University to host a national or international scientist. JHU faculty should propose a well-defined scientific justification to promote potential collaborations between the visiting scientist with JHU Faculty that is aligned with the mission of the Kavli NDI. 


Hopkins Conte Digestive Diseases Basic and Translational Research Core Center Special Pilot Project Funding Opportunity for Hopkins Faculty Conducting GI-Related Research $50,000 September 1, 2020 TBA
The Hopkins Conte Digestive Diseases Basic and Translational Research Core Center was established to advance fundamental and translational gastrointestinal research at Hopkins. The Core mission is to bring together GI investigators and encourage others in the community to enter this area of research. This is accomplished by:
1. Providing cutting-edge resources that are too expensive or labor intensive to be maintained by most individual laboratories
2. Generating an environment that supports the intellectual activities of Center members through seminars, symposia, and work-in-progress updates on GI-related research
3. Funding Pilot/Feasibility projects
The Pilot/Feasibility Projects (P/FP) are key components of Core activities. The goal of this program is to provide seed money for projects, eventually leading to successful competition for funding at the national level. The P/FPs provide $10,000-$25,000, typically given each year to up to 4 investigators/projects. Alternatively, up to $50,000 can be awarded for collaborative projects between a new investigator and a more senior investigator.
Eligibility:  Four groups of JHUSOM investigators are encouraged to apply:
1. New investigators, who have never held extramural NIH support other than a K or R03 award and have not been PIs on R, P or U grants, are the preferred group for funding. Those with MD, PhD or MD/PhD are eligible and applicants should be junior faculty or will be junior faculty at the start of this funding.
2. New investigators (as in #1 above) can apply in collaboration with a more senior investigator as co-principal investigator. These awards can be up to $50,000. These funds may be shared between the investigators,e.g., if the senior PI contributes specialized reagents, access to unique instruments, or licensed software. A detailed budget is required for these applications, and a majority of the funds should be designated to the junior investigator.
3. Established investigators who are interested in entering the GI field and initiate the GI-related projects.
4. GI investigators who are starting a new, innovative project that represents a significant departure from their on-going, funded research. 


Office of the Vice Provost for Research Discovery Awards $100,000 September 28, 2020 TBA
More than ever, the answers to the most challenging questions cannot be accomplished entirely within one academic discipline, or even one division. The Johns Hopkins Discovery Awards provide grant awards to cross-divisional teams, comprised of faculty and/or non-faculty members from at least two schools or affiliates of the university, who are poised to arrive at important discoveries or creative works. The expectation is that these awards will spark new, synergistic interactions between investigators across the institution and lead to work of the highest quality and impact. These awards are not intended to support already established projects or minimal extensions of ongoing research or professional programs.
Eligibility: Only one application per lead PI will be accepted. There is no limit to the number of proposals you can participate in as a co-PI. If you were the lead PI of a funded 2019 Discovery Award, you are not eligible to apply as the lead PI of a 2020 award. You will be eligible again in 2021. Approximately three of the 30 awards will be in research related to climate change. Approximately five of the 30 awards will be in research related to artificial intelligence. Applications from all academic and professional disciplines at the university are welcome, and may cover fundamental, applied, or clinical research in any field, as well as the development of applied creative projects in the arts and humanities. Applications must include at least two faculty members and/or APL staff members representing at least two separate schools/divisions or affiliates of the university
