University of Maryland Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center (UM-OAIC)
- Pilot Program: The Center will consider funding 3 pilot projects, one of which will be technology focused, with budgets up to $50,000. This funding is designed to provide start-up support for quality research proposals of high relevance to the Center’s mission, which addresses the process by which function is lost, and the multiple factors that affect the onset, and progression of disability in older adults.
- Micro Funds: The Center is excited to offer the opportunity for Pepper Center pilot investigators and junior scholars as well as Pepper Center affiliates that are interested in applying for a pilot or junior scholar position in the future to apply for micro-funds ranging from $500-$1,000 for a current project that relates to the Pepper Center theme.

The purpose of these Passano Clinician-Investigator Awards is to help protect the research time, and thereby further the acquisition of experience and preliminary results for qualified young UMSOM faculty clinician-investigators during the time that they are applying for external career development grant support. The award is for $37,500 per year for up to two years. For more information please contact Dr. Marey Shriver
The aim of a P/F project is to provide convincing data for future proposals to the NIH or other national agencies. Investigators are encouraged to undertake high risk/high gain projects that have the potential to develop but for which no preliminary data of feasibility are currently available. Grants of up to $50,000 (direct cost) will be awarded (with no more than $5,000 going towards salary support for the PI or Co-I). Eligibility for a second year of funding will be considered after submission of a progress report and plans for the second year.
The Maryland Innovation Initiative (MII) is a grant program created to advance the commercialization of near-term, pre-commercial technologies through technology validation, market assessment, and the creation of startup companies in Maryland. Collaborative projects between UMB and University of Maryland College Park, UMBC, Johns Hopkins University, and Morgan State University are strongly encouraged and are eligible for 25% more funding. Contact our Site Miners for help identifying partners and planning proposals.
Faculty Awards in Support of Interprofessional Education (IPE) encourage and build a community of faculty members across the schools of the University of Maryland, Baltimore and throughout the University System of Maryland who have interest and expertise in interprofessional education. This includes, potentially, national and international IPE activities.
