Call for Applications: Neilsen Foundation’s Psychosocial Research Grants
The Craig H. Neilsen Foundation is the largest private foundation dedicated to spinal cord injury (SCI) research and quality of life programs for people living with SCI.
The Neilsen Psychosocial Research Grant cycle is now open to eligible organizations that conduct research on the interrelation of psychological, social and other quality of life factors that will benefit individuals living with SCI. The Foundation is specifically interested in research that focuses on one, or more, of the following areas: Aging, Caregiving, Employment, Health Behaviors and Fitness, Independent Living, Self-Management and Technology Access.
The overall goal for these grants is to lead to “better outcomes for people living with SCI.” Psychosocial research topics can address persons with SCI across the lifespan, including targeted SCI population subgroups or specific aspects of psychological and social support factors that impact health, functioning or quality of life. Research can involve qualitative and/or quantitative methodologies.
Interested applicants are encouraged to review the grant application guide, available at www.chnfoundation.org, for more details. The Neilsen Psychosocial Research Grant application process begins with submitting a required Letter of Intent (LOI) online by March 14, 2014 at 5:00 pm (Eastern Time).
The Neilsen Psychosocial Research Grants program has 3 funding categories:
~ NEILSEN POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP GRANTS: For individuals with a PhD, MD, DVM or comparable research degree that was attained prior to the LOI submission deadline of March 14, 2014. These grants are intended to provide mentored psychosocial research training in SCI. These grants provide two years of funding at $75,000 per year (for a total of $150,000).
~ NEILSEN PILOT GRANTS: For independent junior investigators beyond the postdoctoral level (i.e., Instructor, Assistant Professor or equivalent research position) or for psychosocial research projects that are considered “high risk/high gain,” conducted by junior or established investigators. These grants provide one year of funding, up to $100,000.
~ NEILSEN PROOF OF CONCEPT GRANTS: For established investigators (i.e., at the level of Associate Professor or above) to open new areas of SCI psychosocial research or fill important gaps in the SCI field. These grants provide two years of funding at $150,000 per year (for a total of $300,000).
Awarded grants will be funded in early 2015.
All three Neilsen Psychosocial Research grant funding categories require an online Letter of Intent (LOI) submission by March 14, 2014. LOIs will be reviewed and only those applicants invited through the LOI process may submit a full grant application.
The following general eligibility requirements apply to all three funding categories:
1. Applicants must work in a nonprofit academic institution, research organization/institution or rehabilitation facility with a demonstrated capability to conduct grant funded research. An applicant is not required to be a citizen of the United States or Canada to apply for a Neilsen Foundation research grant; however, the applicant must be employed by an eligible organization/institution located in either country (see item 2 for additional information). Each application must include the appropriate endorsement of an official who is responsible for the administration of awarded funds.
2. Applying organizations/institutions must be located in the United States or Canada. Neilsen Foundation research grants are not awarded to individuals, private foundations or certain 509(a)(3), Type III supporting organizations.

The Neilsen Foundation does not provide grants to undergraduate or predoctoral students.
