ACRI/ABI Postgraduate Grant 

The ACRI/ABI Postgraduate Grant intramural grant mechanism was created to support investigator-initiated, hypothesis-driven (goal-directed) research directed by trainees conducting pediatric research on an Arkansas Children's, Inc, campus. Eligible candidates include those with M.D., Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D, PharmD, or PharmD/Ph.D. degrees who are in their second year of postgraduate training. All trainees must apply with a mentor who is a full-time UAMS faculty member.  Click here to view the RFA.

Eligible candidates include those with a terminal professional degree required for their discipline. If the applicant is pursuing a graduate degree, that applicant must include a detailed mentoring plan and a mentoring statement by an Arkansas Children's staff member. Letters of Intent are due on August 1, and full proposals from those invited to submit applications are due October 1.  Click here to view the RFA.

The Marion B. Lyon New Scientist Development Award

A generous gift from a private donor endows the Marion B. Lyon New Scientist Development Program. This program was established to support highly promising beginning scientists who are working to become independent investigators but who have yet to receive specific types of NIH funding. Eligible candidates must hold MD, PhD, or have equivalent doctoral degree earned at the time of submission (at the rank of Instructor or Assistant Professor) and must be based full time on an Arkansas Children's, Inc, campus.
