The ADEAGies Foundation provides grants to improve public oral health and welcomes letters of inquiry (LOIs) for projects that:
ASDOH and MOSDOH are both eligible to apply for a grant requesting up to $25,000. The funder does not limit the number of LOIs submitted in the same funding cycle, which runs from September to June.
Interested project teams should submit concept proposals for LOIs to Sponsored Programs by August 1.
NIH has renewed its broad funding opportunity announcement inviting applicants to submit investigator-initiated applications for the R03 activity code. The Parent R03 supports discrete, well-defined projects that can be completed in 2 years and require limited funding ($100,000 direct costs). The R03 supports different types of projects, including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. The R03 does not accept clinical trial(s).
Any ATSU researcher interested in an NIH funding mechanism is strongly encouraged to establish an ongoing relationship with program officer(s) at the relevant NIH Institute/Center (IC) up to 1 year prior to submission. Doing so can significantly increase your chances of being funded.
The next deadline is October 16, 2020. Interested parties are asked to contact Sponsored Programs ASAP for help in identifying the best IC for the proposed research based on a thorough, timely review of the relevant IC priorities and funding parameters.
Community Interventions to Address the Consequences of the COVID-19 Pandemic for Health Disparity and Vulnerable Populations (R01)
The National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities with participating NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices intend to solicit research to evaluate community interventions testing: 1) the impacts of mitigation strategies to prevent COVID-19 transmission in NIH-designated health disparity populations and other vulnerable groups; and 2) already implemented, new, or adapted interventions to address the adverse psychosocial, sociocultural, behavioral, and socioeconomic consequences of the pandemic on the health of these groups.
Digital Healthcare Interventions to Address the Secondary Health Effects Related to Social, Behavioral, and Economic Impact of COVID-19 (R01)
The National Institute of Mental Health, with participating NIH Institutes and Centers, intends to solicit applications to support research to determine the role and impact of digital health interventions (e.g., mobile health, telemedicine and telehealth, health information technology, wearable devices) to address secondary health effects of the social, behavioral, and economic changes following the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly among populations who experience health disparities and vulnerable populations.
