Planning Grants

TDAI, in partnership with other members of the campus-wide Interdisciplinary Research Enabling Initiative, offers Planning Grants of up to $10,000 plus in-kind resources for activities to generate competitive plans for pursuing extramural opportunities. Permissable uses include hosting external collaborators or speakers for planning or ideation workshops, testing novel study design, and hiring students to conduct literature reviews. 

Proposals are processed and reviewed on a rolling basis as they are received, and awards granted on a competitive basis as long as budget allows.

For more information or to discuss an idea's possible fit for a planning grant, email Jenny Grabmeier, TDAI research strategist, at grabmeier.3@osu.edu.
