2010 Grant Opportunities at CHRP

CHRP is pleased to announce our grant opportunities for 2010. As was the case in 2009, CHRP is soliciting applications for Innovative, Developmental, Exploratory Awards (IDEAs) in Basic Biomedical Sciences, Clinical Sciences, and Social and Behavorial Sciences.  Applications are also sought for Community Collaborative Research Awards in Social and Behavorial Sciences, and Training Awards (Postdoctoral Fellowships and Dissertation Awards) in the Basic Biomedical Sciences.  See the Call for Applications [PDF] for detailed information.

The 2010 Call for Applications continues to reflect CHRP’s Strategic Planning Process, which was a joint effort between CHRP and its Advisory Council.  This process provided CHRP with a strategic plan covering 2007-2012.  As part of the Strategic Planning Process, a broad array of stakeholders was asked to provide input either through an online survey and/or attendance at Stakeholder Input Meetings held in the Bay Area.

CHRP will be hosting two informational webinars to briefly present the key features of the Call for Applications and answer questions from prospective applicants.

Important features of the application process and Key Dates are listed below and described in detail in the Call for Applications [PDF].

Key Features of the Application Process

  • Letters of Intent (LOIs) are required for all award types; LOI Instructions are posted on this web site, and are also available at proposalCENTRAL. CHRP will review the LOIs for responsiveness to the Call for Applications. (Also, the LOIs will serve to recruit qualified peer reviewers).

  • LOIs are submitted electronically over the internet; submission details are provided in the LOI Instructions documents. After review of the LOIs, applicants receive notification by email of acceptance of the LOI. Applicants with approved LOIs will then have access to the application submission pages at proposalCENTRAL. Application instructions will be available at proposalCENTRAL from the application pages, and will also be posted on the CHRP web site.
