Quartet Pilot Project Competition

Request for Proposals: 2023-2024 Quartet Pilot Research Project Competition
Proposals are due on Monday, March 20, 2023

The Pension Research Council (PRC) and Boettner Center, the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics (CHIBE), the Population Aging Research Center (PARC), and the Population Studies Center (PSC) invite investigators to submit pilot proposals for the annual 2023-2024 Quartet Pilot Research Project competition. Pilot funds are targeted to support small-scale, innovative, or exploratory projects with a duration of one year. Funded projects must have the potential to generate academic publications and priority will be given to projects with potential to develop small-scale or preliminary research findings that would lead to applications for extramural funding, especially to the National Institutes of Health. Total costs are generally limited to $10,000-$20,000 per application; however, larger budgets may be considered if the project is well-suited for generating applications for NIH funding.
