Faculty Pilot Grant Program

The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Research Program supports pilot research projects to increase the ability of WSU faculty to secure successful extramural grant funding and productive careers in substance abuse research. The funds provide research support for faculty members on all WSU campuses to develop their behavioral, psychosocial, and biomedical research capabilities and to demonstrate the merit of their research ideas, productivity, and creativity.  Funding is for a maximum of $30,000, and projects are up to 18 months in duration.
