Now Open: Expansion Award Program

March 24, 2022

The 2022 cycle of the annual Additional Ventures Expansion Award Program is now OPEN! The Expansion Awards enable ‘piggyback’ funding for teams to add new directions or approaches to their currently funded work by providing a one-time grant of $50,000.  We’re seeking proposals that will impact the field of single ventricle research and/or care by expanding the scope of an existing project, expediting time to completion, or otherwise increasing the scientific interest or impact of existing studies already underway.

Eligible proposals must include at least one of the following:

  • Expansion of existing funded studies within the single ventricle research community; OR
  • Addition of single-ventricle-directed aims to ongoing studies within the cardiovascular development field

Proposed projects must be led by Principal Investigator(s) who hold doctoral degrees and are listed as a PI on a single ventricle- or cardiovascular development-related grant funded through December 31, 2022. Proposed expansion plans must have demonstrated relevance to single ventricle heart disease or its associated sequelae.

Proposals for the Expansion Award Program are due by May 2, 2022.
