ALR 2008 - An RWJF New Connections Call for Proposals
Active Living Research is pleased to announce the release of our ALR 2008—RWJF New Connections Call for Proposals (CFP). This CFP will focus on supporting research to inform policy and environmental strategies for increasing physical activity among children and adolescents, decreasing their sedentary behaviors and preventing obesity.
This CFP is a funding opportunity from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) for New Connections grants through ALR. New Connections grants are for new investigators from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities. Two types of grants will be funded under this CFP: research grants and publication grants.
Approximately $286,000 will be awarded for research and publication grants relating to youth physical activity and sedentary behavior at the population level. Information on the two funding categories is outlined in the CFP document.
All proposals must be submitted through the RWJF Grantmaking Online system. The full proposal submission deadline is Thursday, August 28, 2008, 1:00 p.m. PDT.
To view the CFP and to link to the RWJF Grantmaking Online system, please visit our Web site at http://www.activelivingresearch.org/grantsearch/grantopportunities/current.
ALR also will host one conference call on Wednesday, July 30, 2008, 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. PDT for potential applicants to answer questions about the program, the proposal and selection processes. Those who wish to participate in this call must register on our Web site at http://www.activelivingresearch.org/grantsearch/grantopportunities/teleconference.
Investigators who meet the specific eligibility criteria for this CFP also are eligible and encouraged to apply for other ALR grant opportunities.
