The primary intent of the Native Center for Alcohol Research and Education (NCARE) Pilot Project Grant Program is to fund and foster innovative research projects that focus on reducing the burden of alcohol use disorders (AUDs) in American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. The secondary intent of the Pilot Project Grant Program is to support and provide mentorship to junior investigators during the development of their novel approaches to improving the lives of AI/AN people.
This call for grant applications is to promote research projects that focus on reducing the burden of alcohol use disorders in AI/AN communities that will subsequently lead to future external funding. Preference will be given to junior investigators, although mid-career and senior researchers who have not conducted alcohol intervention research in Native communities are also eligible to apply. Please refer to the NCARE website for an overview video, full application details, and application forms.
Initial application materials must be submitted for first review by September 30, 2019, at 4:30PM PST.
