Auditory Research Grant

Auditory Research Grants are seed grants for full-time Creighton University School of Medicine faculty in the auditory research field. These grants are made possible by a grant from the Omaha Community Foundation through the Philip E. Heflin Auditory Research Fund. The goal of this funding mechanism is to promote auditory research undertaken to ultimately cure auditory defects. This seed grant program will enhance the ability of faculty to develop sufficient preliminary data for competitive NIH grant applications. These grants are for $20,000 over a two year project period.

  • Investigators should not submit more than one grant proposal to be considered.

Budget Restrictions: The following are not allowable expenses: faculty salaries, space, travel, repairs, renovations and indirect costs.
