The overall goal is to provide the initial resources to support a larger grant application.
To apply for funding, submit a research plan (maximum of three pages) to firstname.lastname@example.org describing the work that these funds would support and why the work could not be otherwise completed without these funds. An itemized one-page budget and CV/biosketch for the principal investigator is also required. Be sure to include a project title and list of team members and affiliations.
Priority will be given to graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior faculty. Senior researchers new to the area will also be considered. If you have received funding through any of the of the following, you are not eligible for this award:

We are especially interested in funding work on health-related decision making. Priority will be given to proposals that use the funds for data collection rather than salary support.
