Johns Hopkins Discovery Award
In 2015, the president, provost, and the deans of the University announced a new funding program for innovative, collaborative research or creative projects.
More than ever, the answers to the most challenging questions cannot be accomplished entirely within one academic discipline, or even one division. The Johns Hopkins Discovery Awards provide grant awards to cross-divisional teams, comprised of faculty and/or non-faculty members from at least two schools or affiliates of the university, who are poised to arrive at important discoveries or creative works. The expectation is that these awards will spark new, synergistic interactions between investigators across the institution and lead to work of the highest quality and impact. These awards are not intended to support already established projects or minimal extensions of ongoing research or professional programs.
Administrative questions about the application process can be addressed by contacting: Denis Wirtz, Vice Provost for Research or Sue Porterfield, Assistant Vice Provost for Research through Tracy Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-516-8094
