2019 Busch Biomedical Grant Program

Application deadline: May 20th, 2019, 5pm

The Busch Biomedical Grant program is designed to enhance biomedical research at the University and to strengthen the competitive position of faculty members who seek external research funds. Interest income from the Charles and Johanna Busch Bequest is distributed within the University to reflect the stipulations of the Last Will and Testament of Mr. Charles Busch.

The Busch Biomedical Grant program will support research projects up to a total of $40,000 for up to 2 years ($20,000 per year).

The program supports three funding types:

1. Bridging Grants, extramural competitive renewal grant applications from established investigators that were reviewed and received a score, but were not funded

2. Seed Grants for early stage faculty

3. Collaborative “High Impact” grants from two or more faculty members
