Bridge Funding

The School of Dentistry has adopted a bridge funding program to assist researchers in "bridging" a previously funded project with the anticipated re-funding of that project from extramural sources.  A brief description of the project, including eligibility and review criteria, can be found here.  Note that the most competitive proposals will be those seeking to bridge previously funded work where a renewal application has received promising (but unfunded) scores and where comments by reviewing agencies suggest that a re-application would be successful. This program is funded one-third each by the department, the Dean's office, and the Chancellor's office. The program is modeled after the School of Medicine's program.  For additional details, go to the School of Medicine's site at School of Medicine Bridge Funding Program.  

Applications should be submitted electronically as a single pdf document and should contain:

  1. Cover page, listing the funded project that is to be bridged,  
  2. Biosketch and Other Support section, including past, pending, and current funding, 
  3. Letter detailing research program, financial needs, attempts to re-establish funding, description of adverse impact of impending shortfall on research program, and plan for re-establishing funding during the bridge year (2 pages, max), 
  4. Budget,
  5. Letter of Support from the Chair of departmental source stating commitment of one-third of the value of the award, and
  6. Information [including summary statement, priority score, percentile and funding payline (if known)], from most recent attempt to fund the project to be bridged.

The application process is "rolling"; you may apply at any time.  Applications will be reviewed by a committee consisting of the Chairs and the Associate Dean for Research. Submit the application to Associate Dean Tom Lang electronically as a single pdf file.
