A maximum of $40,000 will be awarded to each recipient. The number of grant recipients and grant amount will be determined by the DREAM Innovation Grant Committee.
DREAM Innovation Grants are funded through a combination of:
- Private donors
- Private companies
- Executive Board members
Funding provided by DIG will support a researcher for one year, during which pilot studies can be conducted. Investigators must submit quarterly reports to track their progress. Not only do these reports give each researcher an edge over their competition when submitting National Institutes of Health (NIH) applications, but they are also shared with DREAM Campaign supporters to provide them with tangible evidence that their donations are making a difference.
At the conclusion of the one-year period, a new group of DIG winners are announced, and the cycle of innovation and discovery begins again. Help us extend this opportunity to a greater number of worthy applicants! With a gift of $40,000, you can independently sponsor one DIG applicant. And, the chances are strong that your initial gift will be matched or multiplied in the future by extramural funding sources. Please consider making a donation of any amount to support this worthy cause.
