NC State/NIEHS CHHE Announces RFA for Spring 2022 Pilot Projects
NC State/NIEHS Center for Human Health and the Environment (CHHE) is announcing its request for applications (RFA) for pilot project proposals for Spring of 2022. Applications are due by February 15, 2022 at 5:00 pm EDT.
Individual awards will range upwards to $25,000 (direct cost) for one year and CHHE expects to fund up to six proposals. CHHE will also award up to three $50,000 proposals (direct costs) for dual-investigator, multi-disciplinary collaborative research which requires additional funding and separate budgets. The earliest start date will be mid to late March 2022 with twelve months to expend the total project budget. CHHE full members can now use the STC Voucher Program Funds for STC services that are part of a CHHE PPP. The CHHE Pilot Project Program (PPP) fosters collaborations, increases interdisciplinary research and aids in the career development of early career investigators to advance environmental health research. The overarching goal of CHHE’s PPP is to provide support for research aimed at understanding the adverse impacts of environmental factors on human health and disease. The CHHE PPP encourages multidisciplinary/collaborative approaches and the use of CHHE’s cores and resources. The PPP has added a new program that supports community engaged projects. More details about the objectives of the PPP and RFA instructions can be found at https://chhe.research.ncsu.edu/pilot-projects.
