2016/17 ARCC Seed Grant Competition

Deadline: October 14, 2016  12:59:00 am

The purpose of the ARCC Seed Grant program is to provide initial ‘start-up’ funding for new or existing researchers to conduct research. The proposed research is to be in an area that is relevant to ARCC, specifically demonstrating alignment with one of the core ARCC Program Areas (Health Technology Assessment; Health Systems, Services, and Policy; Societal Values and Public Engagement; and Survivorship)

Examples of studies that can be funded through this funding opportunity include studies that collect pilot data, studies involving analysis of administrative data, and literature reviews. Upon completion of the Seed Grant project, the research team should be able to demonstrate support for a larger funding application to external granting agencies by, for example: providing preliminary data to justify the need for further research, showing a foundation on which a larger project can be built, and producing deliverables related to a project plan.
