The Charles H. Hood Foundation was incorporated in 1942 to improve the health and quality of life for children through grant support for New England-based pediatric researchers.
To advance its mission, the foundation is inviting applications for its Child Health Research Awards program. Through the program, grants of $165,000 over two years will be awarded to researchers who are within five (PhD scientists) or seven (physician-scientists) years of employment following completion of training with relevance to child health. Grants will be made in support of hypothesis-driven clinical, basic science, public health, health services research, or epidemiology projects focused on child health, with the goal of supporting newly independent faculty, providing them with the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity, and assisting them in the transition to other sources of research funding.
To be eligible, applicants must be working in a nonprofit academic, medical, or research institutions located in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, or Connecticut. United States citizenship or residency is not required.
See the Charles H. Hood Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
