Applying for grants

The SFP Research Fund ninth competitive grant funding cycle is now completed, and we awarded nearly $3 million in grants—our largest cycle to date. The awards are now posted on our grant awards page. Congratulations to all awardees!

In addition, the initial application period for the SFP Research Fund tenth competitive grant funding cycle has now ended. Review of the concept papers for a multisite grant will be completed in mid-July, and selected applicants will have until August 19 to submit a full proposal. Award decisions for the community-based participatory research (CBPR) and interdisciplinary innovation (I²) grants will be announced in late July.

The tenth competitive grant funding cycle is our second round of grants for 2015—and the first time we have been able to offer more than one funding cycle in a year. During this cycle, the SFP Research Fund plans to award $1.6 million in the following grants:

Multisite grant

Grant supports all aspects of a multisite study that addresses one or more of the research priorities. While this grant lends itself well to a clinical trial, it would be beneficial for applicants to assemble a team of researchers with varied expertise.

Please note the following key dates:

  • Mid-July, 2015: Notification of concept papers selected for full proposal submission and opening of online site for proposal submissions
  • August 19, 2015: Proposal submission deadline
  • Early September, 2015: Award decision announced

Community-based participatory research (CBPR) grant

Grants support a partnership approach to research that equitably involves community members, organizational representatives, and researchers in all aspects of the research process, and in which all partners contribute expertise and share decision making and ownership.

Please note the following key dates:

  • Late July, 2015: Award decisions announced

Interdisciplinary innovation (I²) grant

Grants encourage the development of innovative collaborations by supporting the planning activities and research studies of an interdisciplinary team.
