The Proposal Development Program is aimed at strengthening the ability of researchers at the primarily undergraduate institutions (PUI) in Rhode Island to compete effectively for funding and achieve the aim of a sustainable student training program. It provides PUI investigators the opportunity to further develop their independent grant proposal while also engaging in student development activities. Investigators supported through this program will have the responsibility to mentor students throughout the calendar year. They will also be required to present their research, with students as co-presenters, at local and regional meetings, and publish peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals. This program emphasizes progression toward independence and investigators are required to augment their research funding by seeking NIH R15, R21, or similar grants from other federal agencies, and from private foundations. The proposals prepared for external funding are peer-reviewed by RI-INBRE prior to their submission to the funding agencies to improve chances of successfully obtaining funding.
