Grants 102 Application Process

Grants 102 is open only to individuals with a faculty appointment (Instructor level or above).  Postdoctoral fellows, residents, other research personnel, and administrative staff are not eligible.

The 2021 Grants 102 course will be held from February to July 2021. Dates and locations are listed in the Course Outline. Participants are asked to plan in advance to attend all sessions. 

Application packets should include the following information.

Approval of the applications is not automatic but will be based upon the above materials with especially strong consideration given to the applicant’s cover letter and the department chair’s letter of support.  Preference will also be given to junior faculty members who have not yet received significant research funding, but demonstrate a long-term commitment, potential, and department support to develop an independent research program.

Within one month after the program begins (i.e., by March 18, 2020) participants will be required to identify a senior faculty mentor to guide the preparation of their research proposals.  Applicants are thus encouraged to contact potential mentors as soon as possible to see if they would be willing to serve in an advisory role.  Applicants who would like to discuss the selection of potential mentors at this time or have any other questions may contact the Program Director, Dr. Kevin Morano by phone (713.500-5890) or email ( for assistance.

*Due to space limitations the program is limited to junior faculty members at UTHealth Schools.  Interested faculty from other TMC institutions should contact Dr. Morano – to discuss space availability.
