The Consortium of Rural States (CORES) Research Collaborative, which includes UAMS, recently released its interinstitutional pilot award request for applications (RFA), with up to $25,000 available per award per participating institution.
All UAMS-affiliated faculty are invited to apply, including those based at Arkansas Children’s Research Institute and the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System.
Letters of intent are due Jan. 19, 2024.
The interinstitutional pilot awards involve eight institutions with Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA). In addition to UAMS, the collaborative includes Dartmouth College, Penn State University, the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, University of Kansas Medical Center, University of Kentucky, University of Iowa, and the University of Utah Health.
The RFA requires the participation of at least two of the CORES institutions on each pilot application.
Funding emphasis for this RFA will be given to proposals that address one of the following: Climate change and environmental health; health equity for underrepresented populations; rural health; and maternal health.
