The United Soybean Board (USB) is offering up to a total of $120,000 in incentive awards to researchers who develop the best research concepts on soy and human health.
This is the 16th year that the incentive awards have been offered. In addition to welcoming proposals dealing with soy protein, isoflavones, etc., funds have been earmarked for at least two proposals dealing with soybean oil and human health. If oil proposals of high merit are not received, the earmarked funds will be used for other types of proposals.
A simplified application process has been developed that includes an official Application Cover Form and a four page narrative of the research proposed.
Applications to the program are due by March 15, 2016. Selected applicants will then be required to submit full grant proposals to NIH to meet the June or October 2016 deadline.
