Trifecta Initiative Facilitating Funds (TIFF)

Submission deadline for Fall 2022 is 11:59pm on November 21st.

New for Fall is a trial of two funding levels: the TIFF Collection Award and the TIFF Intervention Award.

The TIFF Collection Award is intended for targeted data collection (e.g., participant payment, survey distribution) and/or statistical consultations (CSTAT) of existing data. Other expenditures towards finalizing an NIH/NSF proposal could include such things as visits with a NIH/NSF program officer, publication costs, or travel costs for conferences. Maximum requested budget is $5000. Up to three proposals may be awarded for this call.

The TIFF Intervention Award is an expanded award which is also more selective award intended for a targeted intervention test (e.g., effects of messaging campaign, therapy consultation, mobile health device). Other expenditures towards finalizing an NIH/NSF proposal could include such things as visits with a NIH/NSF program officer, publication costs, travel costs for conferences. Maximum requested budget is $15,000. Only one may be awarded this call.

The proposed project must be directed toward obtaining specific named external funding (outside of MSU).
