About Pilot Project Program


The Pilot Project Program consists of two components, the Pilot Project Awards and the Seed Project Awards. The Pilot Project Awards (not to exceed $125,000 each year for two years) are intended to support large scale projects that will lead to a major product within the two-year funding period. In contrast, the Seed Project Awards ($40,000 over one year) are intended to catalyze small scale projects with the potential to significantly impact the mission of the HU-TCC: MMHI and the NIMHD. The primary objective of the Pilot Project Program is to support and nurture the professional development of HBCU-based NIH-defined New Investigators to be able to effectively compete for further NIH or other extramural funding.
