HEI has issued Request for Applications (RFA) 17-2, Health Effects of Air Pollution, which solicits small research projects on air pollution and health. The RFA provides an application mechanism for investigators whose area of interest falls outside the topics targeted in the current major research requests. RFA 17-2 requests preliminary applications for small, innovative studies on air pollution and health in general that are relevant to HEI’s current priorities as outlined in the HEI Strategic Plan 2015-2020.
HEI encourages interested applicants to submit preliminary applications for projects of up to two or two-and-a-half years in duration. The HEI Research Committee will generally not consider studies of longer duration. The funding cap for each study will be $400,000 (total budget) and HEI expects to fund two studies from this RFA. Preliminary applications are due on June 30, 2017. The Research Committee will invite a subset of these applicants to submit a full application, which will be due on December 15, 2017. Please refer to Funding Opportunities on how to apply.
