Funding Programs

Funding programs at the Center for Dissemination & Implementation support innovative projects focused on improving the dissemination and implementation of health interventions.

Rapid Cycle D&I Add-On Funding

This new funding mechanism enables investigators to rapidly “add-on” measurements or pilot data collection to an existing observational or experimental research study to better understand an aspect of D&I. Read more.

We solicit a one-page description and justification. (See details below.) We will seek to respond within a week.  We particularly encourage submissions from researchers and studies on cancer prevention and control.

Available funding: Add-on grants fund up to $15,000 in direct costs.

Project Specifics: In one page or less, please provide:

A. Rationale
B. Current Opportunity (abstract for the current project)
C. Proposed additional work
D. Impact on Dissemination and Implementation Science
E. What you see as the likely next steps from the D&I add-on funding
a. If an additional grant, please include anticipated    submission date, funder, and grant type

For questions or to apply, contact Matthew Brown.

Pilot and Small Grant Funding

The center offers two seed funding programs for 2020-2021, a Pilot Projects Program and a Small Grants Program. These programs are designed to support a broad range of dissemination and implementation studies, and aim to support the development of projects to the point at which they’re ready to compete for external funding.

Pilot Grants

Pilot grants fund up to $30,000 in direct costs for one year.

Applicants must be Faculty Scholars at the Institute for Public Health, and must submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) by 5 p.m. CST on January 15, 2020. A set of forms for the pilot submissions will follow to PIs along with the LOI acceptance.

Small Grants

Applicants may request up to $7,500 for up to one year for development of a D&I research proposal to be submitted for extramural funding.

Applicants must be Faculty Scholars at the Institute for Public Health, and must submit the application materials below by 5 p.m. CST on March 30, 2020.
