Call for Proposals: Seed Grants to Support Palliative Care Education and Research
The California State University Institute for Palliative Care invites proposals for seed grant funding 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, CA, Oct. 11-12, 2018.
Multiple grants of $5,000 or $10,000 will be awarded at our 2018 National Symposium, October 11-12, 2018, in San Diego.
The Institute particularly 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.
Support for Seed Grant Funding is made possible by the Gary and Mary West Foundation.
- 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 principle investigator (PI) team consists of employees of U.S.-based accredited academic institutions.
- 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 10 years or those whose entry into palliative care research or teaching has been within the past 10 years.
- Seed grants are not intended to duplicate support for a funded research project.
