Aurora Research Institute and Aurora Health Care Foundation support critical patient-centered medical research by offering six funding awards.
Aurora principal investigators (PIs) with current or proposed research projects may be eligible for these awards. Our funding specialists will help you identify, apply for, manage and distribute your project funds.
Remember, you must submit all funding applications through the Sponsored Programs Office (SPO).
We offer six funding awards to Aurora researchers and clinicians. You can use these funds alone or in addition to other funding.
Each award provides funding for up to one year.
The application periods are staggered throughout the year. The Aurora Cancer Care Research Award application process begins in February, the Cardiac Research Award and Sullivan award in May and the Cardiovascular Surgery Award in August.
Quality research requires adequate funding. Our funding specialists are here to guide you through every step of the funding process.
