Research Grants

NIHCM Foundation supports innovative investigator-initiated research with high potential to inform improvements to the U.S. health care system. Projects must advance the existing knowledge base in the areas of health care financing, delivery, management and/or policy.

Application Information

The 2021-2022 round of grant making for this program is now underway. This year, NIHCM Foundation is making a total of $1 million available to support our research and journalism grant programs. This funding will be allocated across the two programs according to the merits of the proposals received.

Winning research studies will be selected using the following process:

  • Interested researchers must submit a brief letter of inquiry (LOI) outlining their study idea by 5:00 PM EDT on June 30, 2021. Applications are welcome at any time prior to that deadline. LOIs must conform to the required structure and must be submitted using NIHCM’s online entry system (see below).
  • Full (10-page) proposals will be invited from a small number of applicants in August and will be due in September 2021.
  • NIHCM will notify grant winners by December 2021, for project start dates as early as January 2022.
