The NJ ACTS Pilot Program offers pilot grants to foster collaborative research among faculty in three institutions: Princeton University, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and Rutgers University. We expect that the NJ ACTS Pilot Program will increase collaborative research and provide a path to sustainable, extramurally-funded independent research across the alliance.
NJ ACTS committed $640,000 in 2022. The program is funded through the generous support of the NIH CTSA Award, the New Jersey Health Foundation (NJHF), and each of the academic partners.
Please review the NJ ACTS Request for Application (RFA) and fillable application found below. There were four different categories of projects and the collaboration requirements and funding amounts varied by project type. Translational and Clinical Sciences awarded up to 110K, and awards of up to 50K were available in other categories.
