UCSF’s Resource Allocation Program (RAP), which incorporates a single online application for 29 different grant mechanisms, is now requesting applications for the Spring 2013 cycle. The electronic submission deadline is Monday, Feb. 25, at 2 p.m.
“The funding rate for applications utilizing the RAP process is unheard of in today’s funding environment – about 50 percent,” explains Gretchen Kiser, PhD, the director of the recently created Research Development Office, in which RAP resides. With such a potential for research funding, “all UCSF researchers should take a look at the Spring cycle opportunities.” 
Through a collaborative effort among UCSF intramural funding agencies, RAP facilitates the dissemination, submission, review and award of intramural research funding opportunities on campus. The program promotes research in the following disciplines: Basic Sciences, Clinical and Translational Sciences, Population Sciences.
A total of nearly $2.5 million was distributed to UCSF researchers during the Fall 2012 cycle.
