Developmental Research Project Program

The primary mission of the Developmental Research Project Program is to provide financial, resource, and mentoring support for junior investigators at the seven participating Rhode Island institutions. Specific goals for the doctoral degree granting institutions, (University of Rhode Island and Brown University), include recruitment of junior investigators, as well as funding and mentoring for incumbent investigators. At five primarily undergraduate institutions, (Bryant University, Providence College, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, and Salve Regina University) the specific goals are training of undergraduate students, publication of research findings, and development of sustainable student training programs. In addition, a pilot project program funds projects for one year periods to collect pilot data for external grant submissions and to train undergraduate students. Senior investigators are selected from the University of Rhode Island, Brown University, and other institutions to mentor and/or collaborate with the junior investigators. The mentors/collaborators provide guidance in preparation of grant proposals, submission of manuscripts, and designing of experimental strategies. Different funding mechanisms are available to potential investigators as part of the Developmental Research Program.  These include: Early Career Development, Collaborative Proposal Development, Proposal Development, Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows (SURF) Training, and Pilot Proposal Development.  Click the links below to learn about the goals of each mechanism and the projects that are currently supported.
