Roybal Pilot Grant Competition-Funding Opportunity

The Midwest Roybal Center for Health Promotion and Translation is holding a pilot grant competition this year for UI-UIC scientists studying health promotion for older adults.  

The Center seeks to fund and support small clinical trials that assess the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary effectiveness of new or adapted health promotion interventions.  All UI-UIC researchers — faculty, doctorate-level researchers and doctoral students are eligible to apply.  Proposed interventions must be principle-driven behavioral interventions that target older adults (50+) living in the United States. Interventions that target physical activity promotion and/or that maintain or enhance mobility and cognitive function are preferred.  Interventions should use cutting-edge technology for intervention design, measurement, and outcomes. Projects can be funded up to $50,000 for one year beginning June 1, 2022.  

Applications are due December 3, 2021 and letters of intent are requested by November 15, 2021. Please send all materials or further questions to Andrew DeMott, MPH,
