Cores that receive Feinberg funding in a given fiscal year are reviewed as part of their request for the subsequent fiscal year. It is important to recognize that funding in one year does not imply a commitment by Feinberg to continue support of a core. Each year, on average, two to three cores are not renewed and several new cores receive funding.
Funding requests are reviewed by the Feinberg Research Cores Committee. Funding recommendations are based on information provided in the application as well as on the perceived strategic need for the core’s services. The committee may fund all or part of the request, provide funding contingent upon requirements detailed in a letter to the core director and advisory committee, or decline funding.
The funding application is in three parts, detailed below. The committee will also receive the results of the annual user satisfaction survey for each core.
NOTE: The FSM funding application and the annual report to the NU Office for Research now use the same files. If you are requesting FSM funding please return your application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for fiscal year 2020 funding requests is May 1, 2019.
