New Funding Opportunity: Call for Proposals – Round 10
Active Living Research is pleased to announce the release of our Call for Proposals (CFP) – Round 10. This call for proposals focuses on supporting research to inform policy and environmental strategies for increasing physical activity among children and adolescents, decreasing their sedentary behaviors and preventing obesity. This CFP consists of grant opportunities for specified research topics and dissertation awards. It also includes funding opportunities for New Connections grants made available through the Active Living Research program. New Connections grants through Active Living Research are for new investigators who have been historically disadvantaged or underrepresented in research activities.
Approximately $2.6 million will be awarded through this CFP. Information on the specified research topics, dissertation awards, and New Connections grants through Active Living Research is outlined in the complete call for proposals.
Please note that we anticipate CFP10 will be the last major annual grant opportunity through Active Living Research. We anticipate additional funding through the Rapid Response mechanism over the next 18-24 months.
All proposals must be submitted through The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Grantmaking Online system. The full proposal submission deadline is April 14, 2010, 1:00 p.m. PT. For more information and to link to the RWJF Grantmaking Online system, visit our website here.
