Funding Opportunities

 

Our Latest Deadlines

Researchers interested in funding for a clinical trial of a strategy to prevent fall-related injuries in older adults have until 5 p.m. ET tomorrow, Wednesday Nov. 13, to submit applications. We’ve committed up to $30 million to fund this trial in partnership with the National Institute on Aging of the National Institutes of Health, which is administering the application and peer-review process. Visit our Funding Center for more details and a link to the Request for Applications.

 

We’re still looking for proposals from those interested in helping us develop an action plan to promote dissemination and implementation of our research findings and a process for evaluating those efforts. Proposals are due by 5 p.m. ET Friday, Nov. 22. See our RFP for more information.

 

Webinar for Potential Tier I Pipeline Awards Applicants

We’ll hold an informational webinar tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 13, for individuals considering applying for one of our new Tier I Pipeline to Proposal awards. These awards aim to develop partnerships and research project ideas involving individuals and groups not usually involved in such efforts. This webinar is open to potential applicants in the 13 Western states where we launched a pilot of this initiative on Oct. 15. We’ll announce more Tier I opportunities throughout the rest of the country in early 2014. Register for the webinar here.

 

We’ve Reorganized Our Funding Cycles

Please note some important date and name changes related to our application and funding cycles. We’re moving from three cycles per year to four to increase the amount of research support we award annually.  The Winter 2014 cycle — formerly the December 2013 cycle — now has an application due date of Tuesday, Jan. 21. The Spring 2014 cycle opens on Wednesday, Feb. 5, with required letters of intent due Friday, Mar. 7, and applications due Tuesday, May 6. Visit our Funding Center to find more.
