The 2020-2021 round of grant making for this program is now underway. This year, NIHCM Foundation is making a total of $1 million available to support our research and journalism grant programs. This funding will be allocated across the two programs according to the merits of the proposals received.

Winning projects will be selected using the following process:

  • Applicants are required to submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) describing their project by 5:00 PM EDT on August 5, 2020. Applications may be submitted any time prior to that deadline. LOIs must conform to the required structure and must be submitted using NIHCM’s online entry system (see below).
  • NIHCM will notify the grant winners in the fall.
