ISAC Awardee Concepts


What is the ISAC Award?

Seed funding for exceptionally innovative, disruptive (high-risk/high-reward) research relevant to KUH communities that has the potential to lead to groundbreaking or paradigm-shifting results that will change the field. ISAC awards are NOT Pilot & Feasibility projects for the generation of more preliminary data for traditional NIH applications (e.g., R01). Non-responsive applications will not be reviewed or funded.

All awardees will have at least one virtual "check-in" with members of the ISAC coordinating team to assess productivity and discuss novel ways to effectively communicate your breakthrough discovery and share validated data and resources.

Three-page applications may request up to $100,000 (direct + indirect costs) Total Costs for one year.

PLEASE NOTE: In a continuing effort to remain innovative, the ISAC application process may change from cycle to cycle. Please make sure to download the most recent application and read the instructions carefully.

The next submission deadline is August 15, 2024.
