Award Funding

Funding for 20% FTE of PI effort (NIH salary cap, includes fringe + benefits) will be awarded; the ACR will develop the remainder of the project budget, with funding needed to be sufficient to support ACR staff and infrastructure. Each project will be awarded for 12 months, with the option for a no cost extension to be requested. Funding is limited for up to two (2) PIs per project.

Types of Projects Funded

Pilot or seed grant-type projects should test a new idea or help support a new area or direction of clinical radiology research. Grants may address a specific hypothesis and generate preliminary data that could be used to bolster subsequent comprehensive applications to national peer-reviewed funding agencies. The project must utilize ACR staff expertise or systems and outline a plan for future growth in science and funding.

Eligibility for FCRI Grant

Applicants must be current American College of Radiology members (in good standing). Grants are available to full-time faculty and trainees with an MD, DO, PhD, or equivalent degree at educational institutions and private practices in the United States. Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) and subsequently be invited to submit a full application.
