NCI/DCCPS R03 Program Announcements

The funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) on this site provide the option for R03 applications. R03 grants support discrete, well-defined projects that can be completed in 2 years and require limited levels of funding. Examples of the types of projects that the R03 grant mechanism supports include pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analyses of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology.

A budget for direct costs of up to $50,000 per year may be requested, with a maximum of $100,000 direct costs over 2 years. The direct cost limit is exclusive of consortium F&A costs.
