Intramural Research Grant Opportunities

Speros Martel Endowment for the Aging Geriatric Nursing Research Scholarship
Since 2005, the Speros Martel Endowment for the Aging has provided funds to support nurses who, as a part of their graduate degrees,  are learning to manage the care of indigent elderly individuals. Funding will be awarded to students or faculty whose research focuses on the management of high quality, culturally sensitive care for disadvantaged, elderly individuals.

Elizabeth W. Quinn Oncology Research Award
The Elizabeth W. Quinn Oncology Research Award is intended to encourage exploratory and developmental oncology and cancer prevention research projects by providing support for early conceptual stages of projects that can ultimately lead to the development of grant proposals submitted for major extramural funding. The award can also provide additional funds for the expansion of ongoing oncology and cancer prevention research projects.
