Oregon Healthy Workforce Center Seeks Pilot Project Applications


The Oregon Healthy WorkForce Center seeks applications for two Pilot Projects that will expand our portfolio of research on programs that improve occupational health, safety, and personal wellness. A maximum of $50,000 for the first pilot and a maximum of $25,000 for the second pilot is available for a 1-year project beginning in August, 2013. The proposal must address a strategic goal in a NIOSH NORA sector area.

For the $50,000 award, the Principal Investigator (PI) must have an appointment at an Oregon state institution (University, College, or state agency) and be eligible to obtain federal or state research grants through that organization. Multi-disciplinary, multi-investigator and multi-organization collaborations are encouraged.

For the $25,000 award, graduate students with a masters degree are eligible to apply for this award with a senior (faculty) member as a collaborator on the project.

Letters of Intent due May 15th, 2013. For more information, visit our Pilot Program information page.
