Deadline: 8 July 2016
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), an agency of Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is seeking applications from eligible organisations to address nascent or understudied research topics and highly innovative and high risk research topics and approaches related to learning disabilities impacting reading, writing, and mathematics, with a special focus on the study of under-studied and under-represented populations.
It will address high public health impact topics where there is limited data or where progress is limited and novel solutions are needed to improve outcomes and to enhance data collection reflective of the diversity of learners in the U.S. NICHD expressly encourages research applications that necessitate a high tolerance for risk with the potential promise of innovative solutions to meaningful public health problems.
- Primary focus on historically under-studied and under-represented populations who are at risk for, or diagnosed with, one or more learning disabilities impacting reading, writing, or mathematics.
- Nascent, understudied, and highly innovative and/or high risk research topics, involving LDs impacting mathematics, reading and/or writing, which may or may not be wholly focused on at-risk or understudied populations with LDs.
- Historically challenging, yet established, research topics involving populations at risk for or diagnosed with one or more of these LDs where progress has been limited despite high public health need.
Funding Information: NICHD intends to fund an estimate of 3-4 awards, corresponding to a total of up to $1,890,000, for fiscal year 2017.
