Pilot Feasibility Grants

The Pennington/Louisiana NORC is pleased to announce a Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program. The full text of the Application Instructions can be found here.

The major objective of this program is to provide research support to early-stage scientists and multidisciplinary teams to develop preliminary data and/or novel methods involving nutrition and/or obesity-related research.

The highest priority will be given to translational research projects related to nutrition and/or obesity throughout the lifespan. The P&F awards are intended to generate preliminary data for the investigator to obtain extramural research funding from the NIH (e.g., K01, R01).

  • Submission Deadline for LOI: February 2, 2024
  • Funding available: $100,000
