Pilot Funding Eligibility Consultation

This service is provided by the Pilot and Collaborative Studies Resource (PCSR).


Pilot funding eligibility consultations are available to assist researchers who are interested in applying for pilot funding to determine their eligibility for specific programs and find collaborators.


Consultations are available to all Columbia University researchers who are interested in applying for pilot funding through the Irving Institute. 

When to Request This Service

It is strongly recommended that investigators take advantage of this service before beginning their application process. Consultations should be requested well in advance of pilot award application deadlines.


There is no cost for pilot funding eligibility consultations.
