SCIBAR Pitch-It!

Thanks for your interest!

The SCIBAR Pitch-It event has concluded. Check back for more as we prepare to announce the winners in September!


Pitch Event Overview and Guidelines

The SCIBAR (Support for Creative Integrated Basic and Applied Research) Initiative is a yearlong contest for the chance to win one of four, $1 million grants towards a high impact project that dreams big and aims to transform public health.

Successful projects will integrate both basic and applied research, have an explicit focus on health equity, and aim to accelerate an important public health discovery.

46 initial proposals have been narrowed down to 12 finalist teams.

For the final round of the competition, these 12 teams must both capture the imagination and hearts of the School via this pitch event and submit a full written proposal. The SCIBAR Pitch-It! Event is your opportunity weigh in on these big ideas, as your feedback may be used by the teams to strengthen their final proposals.
