Public Health Law Research: Making the Case for Laws That Improve Health 2014 Call for Proposals
Deadline: April 15, 2014, 3:00 p.m. ET
Public Health Law Research (PHLR) is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The goal of this program is to build the evidence for and increase the use of effective regulatory, legal and policy solutions—whether statutes, regulations, case law or other policies—to protect and improve population health and the public health system. This program contributes to the Foundation’s commitment to creating a culture of health in our country by providing the best possible evidence and examples of the impact of legal strategies on health.
Awards up to 18 months and up to $150,000 each will be funded through this round. Applicants may request up to $200,000 with strong justification for additional study expenses.
Up to $1.25 million will be available under this Call for Proposals (CFP).
Mapping studies–legal research that creates a multi-jurisdictional dataset of laws suitable for quantitative research--may also be funded in this category, but budgets for these mapping projects should not exceed $50,000 or 12-months duration.
February 5, 2014 (2:30-3:30 p.m. ET): Optional applicant Web conference call. Please visit the program’s website for complete details. Registration is required.
April 15, 2014 (3 p.m. ET): Deadline for receipt of full proposals.
Mid-September, 2014: Finalists notified of funding recommendations.
November 1, 2014: Grants initiated.
Eligibility and Selection Criteria
Preference will be given to those applicants that are either public entities or nonprofit organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or a tribal group recognized by the U.S. federal government, or affiliated with a tribal group recognized by the U.S. federal government. Applicant organizations must be based in the United States or its territories at the time of application. The focus of this program is the United States; studies involving other countries will be considered only to the extent they directly inform U.S. law and policy.
Consistent with RWJF values, this program embraces diversity and inclusion across multiple dimensions such as race, ethnicity, gender, age and disadvantaged socioeconomic status. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who will help us expand the perspectives and experiences we bring to our work. We believe that the more we include diverse perspectives and experiences in our work, the better able we are to help all Americans live healthier lives and get the care they need.

American Psychology-Law Society Grants-in-Aid Program
The Division 41 Grants-in-Aid Committee is accepting proposals for small grants (maximum of $750) to support empirical graduate research that addresses psycholegal issues (the award is limited to graduate students who are student affiliate members of AP-LS).
There are two deadlines each year: September 30 and January 31.
Interested individuals should submit a short proposal (a maximum of 1500 excluding references) in an electronic format (preferably Word or PDF) that includes:
(a) a cover sheet indicating the title of the project, name, address, phone number, and email address of the investigator;
(b) an abstract of 100 words or less summarizing the project;
(c) purpose, theoretical rationale, and significance of the project;
(d) procedures to be employed;
(e) specific amount requested, including a detailed budget; and
If the application has previously received funding from the committee, their application must also include an abstract describing their completed research.
Budget items typically funded include (but are not limited to) payment of subjects, photocopying, purchase of testing materials, software not typically provided via universities, and electronic media. The Committee does not typically provide funds for computers (though peripherals may be funded), office supplies and furniture (e.g., file cabinets), mileage, paying research assistants, and software or equipment typically available within universities. Conference and other travel costs are not funded.
Applicants should include a discussion of the feasibility of the research (e.g., if budget is for more than $750, indicate source of remaining funds). Note that a prior recipient of an AP-LS Grant-in-Aid is only eligible for future funding if the previously funded research has been completed. Applicants should submit proof that IRB approval has been obtained for the project and the appropriate tax form W-9 for US citizens and W-8BEN for international students. If an applicant’s institution requires that checks be sent to the institution, the applicant is encouraged to contact the committee chair in advance.
AP-LS does not pay indirect costs to the institution or University.
Electronic submissions should be submitted via email to the committee chair, Stephanie Penney, Ph.D. at Stephanie.Penny@camh.ca
Tax forms and proof of IRB approval should also be scanned and sent electronically through email to the committee chair: Stephanie.Penny@camh.ca of the University of Toronto.
