There are three types of awards available through the Bridge Project:

Traditional Bridge Project Grants are $400,000 (total cost) per team per year for up to 2 years ($800,000 total). Funding for the project should be allocated in equal amounts to the KI/MIT and to the DF/HCC institution(s). Funding may be requested for up to a two-year period. Renewal at the end of year one is subject to performance review.

Footbridge Grants are $200,000 (total cost) per team per year for 1 year. Funding for the project should be allocated in equal amounts to the KI/MIT and to the DF/HCC institution(s). Footbridge grants allow newly formed teams to strengthen future Bridge Project applications and obtain necessary preliminary data/proof of concept, as well as become a “true” team.

Expansion Bridge Grants are up to $750,000 per team (total cost) to support the initiation of a Phase I clinical trial or clinical application.
