Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government agencies, and university hospitals and healthcare systems to promote healthcare outcomes and clinical effectiveness research. Funding is intended to support projects that expand involvement of caregivers, patients, and clinicians, thereby increasing capacity, tools, and resources for use in the research process. This program provides funding for research support rather than for research studies.

The Engagement Award: Capacity Building program offers an opportunity for organizations and community groups to continue to build capacity/skills for patient-centered outcomes research/ and comparative clinical effectiveness research (PCOR/CER). PCORI is interested in the following types of projects

  •  Building Capacity to Support Research
  •  Building Capacity to Support Dissemination

For further details on these project types, see https://www.pcori.org/sites/default/files/PCORI-Engagement-Awards-CB-PFA.pdf#page=7.

The Engagement Award program supports PCORI’s Engagement Imperative—defined in the Strategic Plan—and provides a platform to increase engagement in research. 

Projects selected for an Engagement Award are expected to result in tools and resources that may be useful to other awardees for increasing patient and/or other stakeholder engagement in PCOR/CER, PCORI, and the broader PCOR community.

PCORI’s Updated Research Priority Areas:

PCORI’s reauthorizing legislation in 2019 included two new research priority areas: intellectual and developmental disabilities and maternal mortality. These additional priority areas provide more focused opportunities for engaging diverse stakeholders and facilitating patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) that is critical in understanding and addressing the needs of those impacted by these conditions. While PCORI will accept Engagement Award: Capacity Building LOIs for research support projects—not research—on any topic, this funding cycle welcomes projects highlighting either of the two special areas of interest around intellectual and developmental disabilities and maternal mortality.
