Apply for Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Training and Research Award (TRA)

Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) projects are defined by questions reflecting a focal health condition (e.g., diabetes, arthritis, asthma, or major depression) intersecting with a specific diverse community (e.g., ethnicity, faith-based community, or gender identity).

The CBPR  Training & Research Award (TRA) is to train and then provide resources for two Institute for Translational Medicine (ITM) investigators. Criteria: Suitable candidates are early career investigators or senior colleagues seeking to add CBPR to their skills. Preference is given to investigators who identify with one or more diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) communities. Investigators must also agree to partner with a community leader, a person from a diverse community with lived experience of the focal health condition.

Award Details: CBPR-TRA investigators can request up to $10,000 in the first year, with $5,000 each for the investigator and community leader. In the second year, teams can propose a pilot CBPR project with a budget of up to $30,000.
