The voucher program is intended for UNC-Chapel Hill researchers from any school to apply for up to $10,000 in funding to be spent at one or more UNC School of Medicine core facilities that invoice for services. This is intended for new method development or pilot data for currently unfunded projects that also meets one of the following criteria:
- Establishes the applicant as a new customer of at least one core facility
- Creates a multi-core pipeline
- Allows a customer of a core facility to use a new technique or methodology within a core they have previously used in other capacities (this is at the discretion of the core director)
Applicants will be required to meet with and have the written approval of the core directors for core facilities they intend to use at the time of submission and must plan to fully spend out their funds by June 30. Carry-over of funds is not guaranteed, and applicants should be aware that the technical feasibility to complete the study within the proposed timeframe will be an important factor in award decisions.
Proposals are due Oct. 27 at 11:59 p.m.
