Internal deadline was 1/15/18. Sponsor Deadline 4/20/2018. See this link for the internal submission guidelines and other information fro the University of Michigan Foundation’s office. In 1988, the Packard Foundation established the Packard Fellowships for Science and Engineering to allow the nationÕs most promising professors to pursue science and engineering research early in their careers with few funding restrictions and limited reporting requirements. It provides individual grants of $875,000 for 5 years. The program arose out of David PackardÕs commitment to strengthening university-based science and engineering programs in recognition that the success of the Hewlett-Packard Company, which he cofounded, derived in large measure from the research and development in university laboratories.

Last deadline was 10/17/17. We will post any follow up future opportunities here. Toyota Research Institute (TRI) invites proposals from the University of Michigan (U-M) in the areas of machine intelligence applied to robotics, self-driving cars, and automotive safety. As part of the $22M partnership with U-M announced in 2016, TRI plans to award up to $8 million for new research projects starting on January 1, 2018, in areas of interest to TRI. Newly funded projects will have durations ranging from one year to up to three years.

Technological Innovations in Neuroscience Awards

Last LOI was 12/4/17. Any future opportunity will posted here. These awards encourage and support scientists working on the development of novel and creative approaches to understanding brain function. The Endowment Fund is interested in how a new technology may be used to monitor, manipulate, analyze, or model brain function at any level, from the molecular to the entire organism. Technology may take any form, from biochemical tools to instruments to software and mathematical approaches. Because the program seeks to advance and enlarge the range of technologies available to the neurosciences, research based primarily on existing techniques will not be considered.
