Frontiers offers four Trailblazer Awards that provide funding to support targeted research. Investigators from all Frontiers partner institutions are eligible to apply for a Trailblazer Award if they are institutionally eligible to apply for a NIH award as a principal investigator.
We will begin accepting applications for all 2021-2022 Trailblazer Awards in Fall 2020.
Trailblazer Awards are intended for, but not limited to, the following:
- Obtaining preliminary data for a specific extramural grant application
- Development of a community advisory board
- Participant fees
- Or to enhance a funded project (e.g., additional sub-aim or secondary analysis)
Some awards may need to be sent to the NIH/NCATS for official review and approval.
