The Wisconsin Partnership Program invites eligible faculty to submit a preliminary application for a New Investigator Program grant. Awards are now up to $150,000 over two years.

Through this grant program, the Wisconsin Partnership Program supports early-career faculty in initiating innovative research and/or educational approaches towards improving health in Wisconsin. The Partnership Program’s Partnership Education and Research Committee (PERC) plans to fund up to four projects. Preliminary applications are due June 20, 2018. 

Eligibility: The principal investigator must be an assistant professor at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health with a salaried appointment of at least 50 percent.

  • Tenure-track assistant professors must have a formal start date on or after January 1, 2015, plus tenure-track extension, if applicable.
  • Clinical health sciences (CHS) and clinician-teacher (CT) assistant professors must have a formal start date on or after January 1, 2013.

Eligible faculty within all School of Medicine and Public Health departments, including basic sciences, are encouraged to apply.

Preliminary applications will be considered for further development as full applications. PERC members will interview finalists December 10, 2018.
