Funding and Fellowship Opportunities

Gates (Bill and Melinda) Foundation Global Health Program
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's Global Health Division aims to harness advances in science and technology to save lives in developing countries. They work with partners to deliver proven tools including vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics as well as discover pathbreaking new solutions that are affordable and reliable. Equally important is innovation in how they bring health interventions to those who need them most. They invest heavily in vaccines to prevent infectious diseases including HIV, polio, and malaria and support the development of integrated health solutions for family planning, nutrition, and maternal and child health.

John Sealy Memorial Endowment Fund for Biomedical Research Bridging Grant Program
The Bridging Grant Program aims to assist UTMB Investigators with unfunded federal grant applications (with a project period of at least two years) that have received favorable reviews and scores, and are eligible for resubmission. Scored A1 applications submitted after 1/1/14 will also be eligible. The Sealy Grant Program will bridge these proposals by providing up to $50,000 for one year. The goal of the Sealy bridge funding is to allow the investigator to carry out the work necessary for submission of a fundable grant application. LOI Deadline(s): 5/1/15

National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases/CDC/DHHS Epicenters for the Prevention of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs) - Cycle II (U54)
