Community Engagement (CE-Pilot) Partnership Development Award 

  • Awards up to $8,000 to provide seed funding to support activities related to the development of new or emerging community-academic research partnerships.
  • Building relationships between partners (e.g., facilitating formal and informal meetings for partners to learn more about each other, to explore the involvement of other potential partners, and to discuss how the partners will adopt and use equitable collaborative principles and operating norms). 
  • Exploring shared research interests and identifying capacity building needs (e.g., identifying partnership research priorities, determining nature of collaborative research approach that will be used, delineating capacity-building needs, participating in trainings and/or ongoing mentoring opportunities). 
  • Developing an Advisory Committee and/or other appropriate partnership infrastructure mechanisms (e.g., defining roles and responsibilities, developing communication and decision-making mechanisms, policies and procedures; developing a set of collaborative participatory research principles to guide decisions regarding various aspects of the research process).

Community Engagement (CE-Pilot) Joint Pilot Project Award 

  • Awards up to $25,000 to support established community-academic partnerships who seek funds for a well-defined translational research project that may produce preliminary data for future competitive grant applications. 
  • Data collection and/or analysis of community-specific information or other quantitative and qualitative data.
  • Disseminating and translating research findings (e.g., development and implementation of appropriate dissemination tools, such as, fact sheets and policy briefs, to community and academic audiences and to policymakers).
  • Studies of the community translation process, including studies of dissemination methods.

For additional information, contact CCTSI CE Program Manager, Kaylee Gordon

CAMS is a highly competitive program that provides $700,000 awards over five years for physician-scientists who are committed to an academic career to bridge advanced postdoctoral/fellowship training and the early years of faculty service. This is a great opportunity for those who are transitioning from mentored to independent research careers.

For a full explanation of the eligibility requirements, view the Request for Proposals. Applications are due by Oct. 4, 2022.

This bulletin is distributed on the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month for the CU Anschutz Research Community.
