Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) Trailblazer Award
The Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) Trailblazer Award is dedicated to developing novel statistical and research design methodology for clinical and translational science. Frontiers encourages applications involving graduate students in all BERD disciplines. We will begin accepting applications for 2019-2020 BERD Trailblazer Awards in Spring 2019.
Trailblazer Award Application
A total of $50,000 each year is available and awards may pay for software, databases, faculty release time, a graduate student assistant or other appropriately justified expenses. Budget total maximum is $25K; lesser amounts than the $25K maximum are acceptable and encouraged.
Proposals should generally include the following sections: background, significance, specific aims, innovation/benefit and approach. There are no page requirements, but succinct protocols are encouraged. Generally four to six pages in length is adequate.
Indirect/Facilities and Administration costs are not allowed for Frontiers Trailblazer Awards. Proposals for a Frontiers BERD Trailblazer Award will be reviewed by the KUMC Department of Biostatistics External Advisory Board for scientific merit. Scores will be forwarded to Frontiers leadership for funding decisions.
