Seed Grant Applications to Support Palliative Care Education and Research Now Closed
The California State University Institute for Palliative Care has now completed the application round 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 encouraged proposals for innovative educational and/or research projects which would expand current or future workforce knowledge leading to improved care or enhanced quality of life for seriously or chronically ill seniors and/or seniors’ family caregivers.
Support for Seed Grant Funding is made possible by the Gary and Mary West Foundation.
The Project application asked for an 800-word description of the project:
- How the project focuses on palliative care for seniors and/or seniors’ caregivers
- How it may result in improved care and/or enhanced quality of life for serious and chronically ill seniors or their caregivers
- Needs, problems and/or opportunities to be addressed, and challenges to the project
- The target population/geographic audience(s) served and how they will benefit
- How the seed funding will help the project
- Key staff and / or volunteers, their roles and qualifications in relation to the research/project
- Other organizations and/or partners participating in the project and their roles
- The criteria for this opportunity are purposely broad to allow for creativity and innovation on the part of the applicant, however proposals should reflect at least ONE of the Symposium’s missions:
- Improving or advancing integration of palliative care concepts into pedagogy or curriculum
- Performing palliative care-related research that produces measurable outcomes
- Demonstrating collaborative research or teaching across departments, colleges and/or universities
- Supporting educational innovations and/or research to advance teamwork among professional disciplines
- A mid-year progress report will be due to the CSU Institute for Palliative Care by March 31, 2019.
- A year-end project summary will be due to the CSU Institute for Palliative Care by November 15, 2019.
