Add-on grants fund up to $20,000 in direct costs. Applicants must be Faculty Scholars of the Institute for Public Health. Applications accepted on a rolling basis.
The Center for Dissemination and Implementation and the WashU Implementation Science Center for Cancer Control offer a funding mechanism that seeks to enable 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.
In the rapidly moving growth of D&I research, many investigators working in earlier stages of translation research may develop an awareness of untapped opportunities to deepen the conceptualization of D&I strategies and/or measurement of D&I outcomes during the course of existing research. Similarly, researchers working on implementation problems, may be exposed to novel or different D&I considerations driven by interaction with new frameworks or reformulation of the research objectives during the course of the study. In either case, the ability to rapidly add a previously unplanned set of measurements or pilot data collection could quickly augment significantly the value of the existing project.
This add-on mechanism seeks to meet that need through a low-friction, rapid turnaround funding mechanism. The Center for Dissemination and Implementation solicits a one-page description and justification, (below.) Responses will generally be sent within a week.
In one page or less, please provide:
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
If an additional grant, please include anticipated submission date, funder, and grant type
