Special Catalyst competition: Socially Vulnerable Populations
The Institute received a grant in 2017, to partially fund the Research Program for Vulnerable Populations. The goal of the Program is to enable researchers and trainees, in partnership with respected community agencies, to develop and test innovative approaches to lessen social vulnerability, improve coordination of care, and enhance health overall for socially vulnerable populations.
The funds will be used to:
- support trainees across multiple disciplines (medicine, social work, nursing, sociology, anthropology, law and policy, etc);
- initiate team-based pilot research activities and/or demonstration projects that will inform larger-scale projects and leverage additional external research funding; and
- build and sustain necessary and appropriate cross-sectoral collaborations with community agencies and programs.
A portion of the grant (up to $75,000 per year for 3 years) will be used to fund new research and research translation Catalyst awards, in alignment with the criteria outlined above. To request this special Catalyst funding, please complete and submit the dedicated Catalyst Request Template found HERE, along with a short-form CV for the project lead, to firstname.lastname@example.org . The competition deadline for 2019 is October 17.
