Apply for an OpenSim Pilot Project Grant up to $40,000

Applications Due July 20, 2016
OpenSim Pilot Project

The National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) and OpenSim project at Stanford seek proposals for their pilot project program. 

The program awards seed grants to innovative and meritorious projects that will accelerate the use of simulation in rehabilitation research. Pilot project awardees may request funding (up to $40,000) for their research.


Research proposals should provide a scientific description of the project to be performed and convey the impact on rehabilitation and the biomechanical simulation community. Applications must also include a description of funding and other support requested

Preference will be given to projects that limit indirect costs to 8%. Funding may be up to $40,000 in total costs, including any indirect costs assessed by awardees' institutions. The preferred 8% limit on indirect costs is intended to maximize the amount of funds that investigators receive to complete their pilot work. It is an amount that has been agreed upon by the PIs of the MR3 network of research centers. Note that for foreign institutions, an 8% limit is required, per NIH policy.
