Charles H. Hood Foundation Child Health Research Awards Program
The intent of the Child Health Research Awards Program is to support newly independent faculty, provide the opportunity to demonstrate creativity, and assist in the transition to other sources of research funding.
Two-year grants of $150,000 ($75,000 per year inclusive of 10% indirect costs) are awarded to researchers who are within five years of their first faculty appointment by the funding start date. Applicants must be working in nonprofit academic, medical or research institutions within the six New England states. Grants support hypothesis-driven clinical, basic science, public health, health services research, and epidemiology projects focused on child health. Application deadlines occur in the spring and fall of each year. Funding begins every January 1st and July 1st.
