Grants

NIHCM Foundation Research Grants

NIHCM Foundation supports innovative investigator-initiated research with high potential to inform improvements to the U.S. health care system. Projects must advance the existing knowledge base in the areas of health care financing, delivery, management and/or policy. During the fi­­­rst three years of the program, we have awarded more than $624,000 to support ten studies.

2015-2016 Funding Cycle

The fourth round of grant making under this program will begin in the summer of 2015, when interested researchers will have the opportunity to submit brief letters of inquiry outlining their project ideas. A small number of applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal in September 2015, and winners will be announced in November 2015. Funded studies will begin in 2016.
