The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs assists
the Associate Provost for Research in coordinating and
administering internal award programs. The second
competition for the Blue Cross Blue Shield of North
Carolina (BCBSNC) pilot grant program was held in the
fall of 2015. In addition, there were two deadlines for
Pilot Research Grants and one for Collaborative Pilot
Grants. In the spring, a competition was held for a new
pilot grant in cooperation with the Maya Angelou Cen-
ter for Health Equity (MACHE). These new collabora-
tive awards, focused on health disparities, will be effec-
tive in 2017.
FY16 awards by program are as follows:
BCBSNC Pilot Grants $98,910
Pilot Research Grants (PRG) $60,411*
Collaborative Pilot Grants (PRG) $20,000*
*Funding from the ZSR Foundation provided $50,000

The office also manages matching/cost share funds. In

ing, and other initiatives.
