Kavli Exploration Award for Sculpted Light – Letter of Interest
Opens 18 Jun 2024 12:00 AM (PDT)
Deadline 8 Jul 2024 05:00 PM (PDT)
$100,000 - $150,000
Description

The Kavli Foundation invites letters of interest (LOI) for one-year projects exploring innovative technologies to observe or control neural activity using photonic methods. Funding is intended to seed collaborative efforts between attendees of the Sculpted Light in the Brain 2024 conference. 

Funding Opportunity Goals:  

  • Seed new, interdisciplinary, and collaborative research projects 
  • Support innovative, high risk/high impact projects that focus on basic science (as opposed to translational or clinical applications)  
  • Accelerate the development of optical approaches to study brain function 

Funding Details 

  • Projects can request up to $50,000 USD per scientist, with a maximum of $150,000 for teams of up to three researchers  
  • Indirect costs up to 15% of direct costs are allowable 
  • Grant duration: One year 

Scope of projects should be appropriate given budget and duration. The expectation is that these grants will kickstart well-designed preliminary projects or analyses, that could lead to future grant applications for larger, federally funded projects. 

For more information, view the full RFA. 

To apply, click on the green Apply button in the upper right. 

Letters of Intent due July 8, 2024 by 5pm Pacific Time.
