The Hope Center offers Just-in-Time (JIT) funding, designed to enable core access for investigators who have a new idea and limited discretionary funds to generate pilot data in a short time course. We will provide up to $5000 towards user fees of a core facility at Washington University. This includes Hope Center cores (preferred) as well as others on the Medical and Danforth Campuses.
There is no deadline to apply. Requests for funding will be considered by the Hope Center Steering Committee and will be reviewed based on scientific merit, urgency, justification of need, and the project’s potential to further the mission of the Hope Center. Priority will be given to projects clearly connected to a planned grant application. Those who have received a JIT award are not eligible to apply.
How to apply
Applicants for Just-in-Time Awards must be Hope Center Faculty members. To apply, please complete the application form and forward to Anneliese Schaefer. The completed application must be no longer than the single-page form. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
For inquiries, please contact Anneliese Schaefer.
