Hornick Endowment Grant

Program Purpose The Hornick grant program provides funding for stroke and stroke-related disorders, and seeks to promote outstanding research that advances our understanding of the pathogenesis of strokes and stroke- related complications. A major objective of the Hornick grant program is to provide seed money to initiate a project and acquire the necessary preliminary data for submission of a major extramural grant application to a federal agency or national foundation. This grant mechanism will support investigator-initiated research conducted by faculty in the UAMS COM.
Eligibility Requirements Open to current UAMS COM faculty only. The project proposal must clearly explain how the project relates to stroke or the complications of stroke, and must be feasible for completion in a 12-month period. Multiple Hornick awards held concurrently are not allowable.
