The South Carolina Telehealth Alliance (SCTA) has allocated funds for pilot project awards of up to $25,000 direct costs for a 12-month project period for telehealth-based pilot projects that aim to accelerate the adoption, utilization, and investigation of telehealth interventions in South Carolina.

The primary objectives of the funding are to support South Carolina clinicians and researchers in their efforts to develop innovative, scientifically meritorious telehealth projects with an overarching objective of collecting preliminary data for subsequent submission of extramural grant applications as well as publication and dissemination of their research findings. We place a premium on interdisciplinary and/or interprofessional (ID/IP) team science, and cross-institutional and/or organizational collaborations. Therefore, if you are applying for this grant mechanism, you are strongly encouraged to take an ID/IP team approach and include investigators from more than one South Carolina institution/organization. This RFA does not preclude submitting new and innovative project ideas from existing investigator teams. However, the novelty of the research direction needs to be clearly distinguished from the Principal Investigator’s and research team’s past and current research. Further, we encourage submission of applications that may have resulted from SCTA collaborations and/or South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research Institute (SCTR) held scientific retreat/s.

For more information, RFA and to submit the Pre-applications, please visit SCTR Institute’s Pilot Project Program website.
