TRI Pilot Award Program

The goal of TRI’s Pilot Program is to provides seed funds for feasibility testing and generation of preliminary data to support future research efforts that will make a measurable positive impact on health issues facing Arkansas and Arkansans.

Request for Applications (RFAs) are released biannually and rotate among these four focus areas:

  1. Health concerns and challenges of rural and underrepresented populations
  2. Implementation science to incorporate new research findings into the health care system, including rural practices
  3. Biomedical informatics approaches that examine unique state data resources
  4. Community and/or stakeholder-partnered research.
