Since its inception in 1995, CEDA has made over eighty pilot grants, ranging in size from $3,000 to $65,000.
CEDA Pilot awards are intended to encourage, facilitate and support the development of new and innovative research lines. Pilot grants to CEDA affiliates are expected to lead to useful research and to the submission of much larger proposals to NIA and other funding agencies. Many of CEDA's pilot grants have helped investigators develop proposals for significant extramural funding.
A call for pilot proposals is issued annually, in January, but we are available and glad to discuss ideas for pilots at any time. Contact us.
