The James W. Amis Endowment grant program provides funding for meritorious research efforts. A primary objective of the James W. Amis Endowment program is to provide additional funds to support meritorious research projects and assist projects with the necessary money for submission of a major extramural grant application to a federal agency or national foundation.
This grant mechanism will support investigator-initiated research conducted by faculty in the UAMS College of Medicine (COM).
Open only to current UAMS COM faculty at the main and NW Arkansas campuses.
*** Please be advised faculty can submit one project to each grant opportunity. Multiple grant submissions must be scientifically distinct. ***
The next deadline is soon to be determined.
The funding is provided by the James W. Amis Ruth Endowment and administered by the UAMS College of Medicine, Office of Research. The COM Research Council reviews applications and submits recommendations to the COM Executive Associate Dean for Research. The COM Executive Associate Dean makes final funding decisions. One or two grants will be awarded annually from the James W. Amis Endowment grant program to fund meritorious research.
Award Project Period
Twelve months maximum. All funds must be expended by the end of the project period. Carry forward and extensions are not allowed.
