Research 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 nearly $625,000 to support ten studies.

2015-2016 Funding Cycle

The fourth round of grant making under this program is now underway.  NIHCM Foundation is making a total of up to $250,000 available and expects to fund 4 to 5 studies from this amount.

Winning studies will be selected using the following process:

  • Interested researchers are required to submit an initial letter of inquiry (LOI) outlining their study idea by 5:00 PM EDT on July 13, 2015. Applications are welcome at any time prior to that deadline.  LOIs must be submitted using NIHCM's online entry system and must conform to the required structure.
  • Full (10-page) proposals will be invited from a small number of applicants in August and will be due in late September 2015.
