Call for Proposals

Summer Proposals

There will be no summer 2017 call for proposals.

The Mobility Foundation Center for Rehabilitation Research plans to fund 1-2 proposals with a start date of March 1, 2017, and 2-4 proposals with a start date of September 1, 2017. We will fund 2-4 projects with a maximum funding of $100,000 per project. Projects will be funded for one year with the potential for a second year continuation.

Proposals should address the mission of the Mobility Foundation in its population or aims. All proposals must have a UT Southwestern faculty member as a principal investigator or co-principal investigator.

Factors considered in reviewing proposals include:

  • New or young investigators
  • New line of inquiry for more experienced investigator
  • Necessary supplemental funding for the success of a project already funded by other sources
  • Proposal likely to lead to results that would improve the potential for eventual outside funding 

Important Dates:

  • Winter Call for Proposals:
    Application due: December 30
    Announcement of Award(s): February 1
    Proposal Start Date: March 1
  • Summer Call for Proposals:
    Application due: June 30
    Announcement of Award(s): August 1
    Proposal Start Date: September 1

Proposals should include sections on methods, personnel, budget, timeline, plans for future grant application or application of findings, biosketches of investigators, and a bibliography. Proposals for equipment should attach descriptions of funded or pending research grants, descriptions of the use of the equipment, budget justification, plans for maintenance, and ongoing funding.
