Funding opportunity -

Please see the funding opportunity below, sent on behalf of the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance:

The Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance is a new interdisciplinary research initiative whose mission is to transform human health and wellness on a global scale through the discovery and translation of the underlying principles which govern human performance. We are seeking 1-page Letters of Intent (LOI) from faculty across campus for grants up to $200,000. LOIs are due September 15.


This new funding opportunity will support early stage research projects that study human performance, broadly defined. We welcome proposals working to further our knowledge of the science of human performance, including both physical and cognitive performance. Proposals for fundamental scientific exploration and translational work are welcome. We highly encourage teams composed of members that use different methodologies/approaches and/or work in different disciplines. We also welcome proposals focused on teaching and other outreach activities designed to strengthen and educate the human performance community on campus and beyond. Faculty from all departments across the university are welcome to apply.


Proposals may request up to $100,000 in total direct costs per year for up to two years.


Letters of intent are due by Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at 5 PM PDT. Select LOIs will be invited to submit a full proposal.
