2023 ITHS Pilot Program Awards: Apply Now

[NOTE: The application period for this award is now closed. For current award info click here.] ITHS has begun accepting applications for our new Pilot Program awards:


Since 2008, ITHS has offered funding for new clinical and translational research projects or “pilots” to get off the ground. Funding for the Pilot Program is guided by program outcomes and stakeholder feedback, and ITHS periodically remodels the program to better respond to the needs of our community. Investigators from across the five-state WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) region are encouraged to apply.

More Opportunities

Team Science Training: In addition to pilot funding, all teams will be invited to participate in interactive, in-person, or online Team Science training. This highly sought-after training will help researchers create customized team agreements to help them in reaching transdisciplinary research goals and sharing credit for publications and other products

Overall Funding and Support Plan: The annual overall budget for the program is $300,000. The number and dollar amounts of each award type will be adjusted to maximize the yield from the investment. ITHS will offer in-kind support for study design, implementation, and assistance in finding subsequent funding beyond the 1-year term of the award. In this way, ITHS will bring the full scope of its resources to bear in boosting the success of pilot projects.
