This program, sponsored by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), provides start-up funding for new pharmacy faculty’s research programs. Up to 18 grants of up to $10,000 each maximum (no overhead allowed) will be awarded in the 2012-2013 academic year to individual faculty starting their academic careers at U.S. colleges and schools of pharmacy that are accredited by ACPE (candidate or full accreditation status) and whose institution is a regular institutional member of AACP. In addition, each award winner will receive $1,000 from AACP for required travel to present the investigator’s research findings at the AACP Annual Meeting to be held July 26-30, 2014 at the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Convention Center, Grapevine, Texas (near Dallas). An eligible applicant must have an earned terminal degree (Pharm.D., Ph.D., or equivalent) and have a regular full-time faculty appointment at the assistant professor level. The applicant’s initial appointment to a full-time faculty position, whether at a previous or the current institution, must not be earlier than July 1, 2007. Only one application per investigator will be accepted for review. A faculty member who has been a principal investigator on an AACP NIA or equivalent starter grant, on a professional (e.g., ACCP, ASHP, AAPS, PhRMA, etc.), organizational (e.g., American Heart or American Cancer) or federal grant (e.g., NIH, NSF, AHRQ, DOD, CDC etc.) is not eligible to apply. Intramural university or college/school start-up support may be used for supplementing the proposed research. The applicant must be a current individual member of AACP.
