If your PID is not findable, please enter project information and a fund number if required at this link. (Please note: MD student, hospital QI and hospital operations projects paid directly by MSHS do not require a fund number).

After you submit your project information, you will be emailed a custom link with a return code. To later enter or update the fund number or other project information, you must use the custom link with the return code that was sent to your email.
