Deadline Date:

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA individuals with doctoral-level degrees affiliated with nonprofit institutions for research projects related to bioethics. Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to support bioethics research in clinical, biomedical, or public health decision-making, policy, or practice.

The Foundation is particularly interested in proposals that address the ethical and policy issues raised by the following priority topics:

  • The COVID-19 pandemic and other public health crises, including their impact on mental health;
  • Bias and discrimination against patients or clinicians, which may be based on a broad range of characteristics and which may involve institutional and systemic contributors to bias and racism as well as health disparities or social determinants of health;
  • Developments in artificial intelligence;
  • Responses to the opioid epidemic;
  • Healthcare access, costs, and resource allocation.

Proposals for projects that address other real-world, practical bioethics problems are also welcome. 

The Greenwall Foundation will fund 10% indirect costs for salary and benefits only. Salaries for investigators are capped at 1.5x the current NIH cap for the basis of the percent effort allocation.

GrantWatch ID#: 166851

Estimated Size of Grant:

There is no formal limit on the budget or duration of a Making a Difference grant, and the Foundation’s budget and duration constraints may vary among application cycles.

Term of Contract:

Projects to begin on or after January 1, 2022. The Foundation allows one no-cost extension per award for a maximum of 12 months, absent exceptional circumstances.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Greenwall Foundation only makes awards to affiliated individuals at institutions with tax-exempt status in the United States. In addition, an individual cannot receive Making a Difference and Faculty Scholars Program funding from The Greenwall Foundation simultaneously.

Projects with the following characteristics will not be funded under this program:
- Projects for which bioethics is not the main focus.
- Projects that simply describe or analyze bioethics issues or provide a conceptual framework, without making practical recommendations for resolving the issues.
- Projects that implement or make incremental improvements in established approaches to bioethics problems, build institutional infrastructure, or provide bioethics education, training, or coursework.
- Projects that have predetermined conclusions or advocate for predetermined positions.
- Projects whose main goal is to convene or enhance a meeting, unless there is a well-developed plan to produce a major peer-reviewed publication with consensus recommendations, guidelines, or best practices that have a strong likelihood of real-world implementation. The applicant must have a strong record in convening similar successful impactful meetings.
- Projects to support or extend ongoing or core activities of an organization.
- Projects with a principal investigator who does not have a PhD, JD, MD, or an equivalent doctoral-level degree.

Pre-Application Information:

Letters of intent are due June 28, 2021 by 11:59 pm ET, for projects to begin on or after January 1, 2022.

Application Timeline:
- 6/8/2021: Letters of Intent due by June 8, 2021, 11:59 pm ET
- 9/2/2021: Invited Full Proposals due by September 2, 2021, 11:59 pm ET. Invitations to submit full proposals may contain suggestions from reviewers for strengthening the application, and reviewers may request additional clarifications after full proposals are received. Working with The Greenwall Foundation is a collaborative process. The goal is to work with applicants to develop strong proposals that are positioned to have the greatest impact in real-world, practical settings.
- 1/1/2022: Projects to commence on or after January 1, 2022

Please note: in order to be fair to all applicants, the Foundation cannot give feedback on specific proposals or drafts before a letter of intent is submitted and reviewed.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit letters of intent earlier, so that they have time to correct any technical errors that might arise during the application process. Invited full applications will be due September 2, 2021, with project periods to start on or after January 1, 2022. Because of the relatively tight deadline for full proposals that include financial information approved by an appropriate officer, there may be some allowance for budget deadlines. However, priority will be given to fully completed proposals.
