Support for Specific Services

PVARF will provide funds for eligible unfunded or underfunded VA investigators for the purchase of specific services. These services will include biostatistical resources, and other data analytical resources or shared resources from OHSU or other sources or vendors. Funds may also be provided for training in grant writing (e.g. Vollum Writing Program) or lab management. Eligible investigators will include promising new VA investigators who have data but no specified funds, or established VA investigators lacking funding or have insufficient funding where the resource/service would likely lead to new funding.

One page applications should be submitted directly to Shelley Cobb(shelley.cobb@va.gov). The Request for Specific Services template should include a description of the project, services requested, proposed budget and justification of need (attach “other support” page listing all active and pending grants). Proposals <$5,000 are more likely to receive favorable reviews.
