Midwest Roybal Center Pilot Grants

In late summer 2013, the Midwest Roybal Center for Health Promotion and Translation seeks pilot grants in two arenas from UIC researchers fostering the health of older adults.

Applicants may participate in only one competition during a calendar year. Previous grantees are welcome to submit new applications.

TRANSLATION STUDIES

In the first grant solicitation, the center seeks to fund six proposals over three years from UIC researchers — faculty, doctorate-level researchers and doctoral students — that translate basic behavioral and social science research findings to benefit the health and well being of older adults (50+) living in the U.S.

Applications are due Sept. 23, 2013, and one-year grants would be awarded every October from 2014 to 2017. Learn more.

PREDOCTORAL STUDIES

In a second competition, funding is available exclusively to UIC doctoral students for pilot studies of health promotion and maintenance among older adults from U.S. minority or underserved populations.

Applications are due Sept. 23, 2013, and funding would start in November 2013. Learn more.
