The UK Center for Research on Violence Against Women and the Center for Clinical and Translational Science PILOT Program

The UK Center for Research on Violence Against Women (CRVAW) in partnership with CCTS is accepting applications for Pilot Projects. CCTS-CRVAW will co-fund this award.

The goal of the CCTS-CRVAW Pilot Program is to increase extramural funding at the University of Kentucky in areas of intimate partner violence, sexual violence, misconduct or harassment, other forms of interpersonal, family violence, or gun violence that disproportionally impact women, girls or sexual minority populations. We are particularly interested in funding translational research with a violence intervention or prevention focus. Because violence often co-occurs with substance use and other threats to mental health, we welcome intervention or prevention projects that focus on these violence-related outcomes.

The purpose of this funding mechanism is to support researchers with the resources to compete for externally funded grant awards by providing pilot or preliminary data to support grant applications or manuscripts. We encourage the inclusion of a specific notice of funding announcement or grant call.

The maximum award will be $50,000 which must be spent over 12 months. Extensions beyond the 12 months may be granted depending on the review of the progress to date.

This award is open to investigators in the UK faculty eligible to submit and receive externally funded grants. Early career applicants must identify a mentor or mentoring team to assist the investigator.
