The Oklahoma Tobacco Research Center (OTRC) is soliciting applications for research grant funding. Applications are invited for small-scale research projects designed to move forward the field of tobacco-related research, which includes innovative research ideas and the collection of preliminary data that will enable investigators to compete successfully for national research grants.  All levels of investigators are invited to compete.

OTRC expects to fund up to four proposals. Proposals are expected to have a maximum term of one year and maximum direct costs of $50,000.

A letter of intent with a brief description of the proposed project is required. Letters will be reviewed by the OTRC Scientific Advisory Committee, and those identified as having the greatest merit, and the most promise of leading to future extramural funding, will be invited to submit a complete proposal.
