The California State University Institute for Palliative Care has issued a Request for Proposals for seed grants to support projects that advance palliative care education and research with a focus on seniors or family caregivers of seniors.
The funding is offered in conjunction with the theme of the National Symposium on Academic Palliative Care Education and Research, Quality in Palliative Care: Fusing Education, Research and Practice, being held in San Diego from October 11 to October 12, 2018. Multiple grants ranging between $5,000 and $10,000 will be awarded at the symposium. The institute encourages proposals for innovative educational and/or research projects that will expand current or future workforce knowledge leading to improved care or enhanced quality of life for seriously or chronically ill people.
Applicants from accredited academic institutions in the U.S. may apply for funding. Projects may be performed outside of the U.S. as long as the principal investigator team consists of employees of U.S.-based accredited academic institutions. In addition, applicants must be registered and attend the 2018 Symposium. Preference will be given to those applicants who have received their terminal degree within the past ten years or those whose entry into palliative care research or teaching has been within the past ten years.
See the Institute for Palliative Care website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
