Deadline (Application): New Frontiers in Research Fund - Rapid Response Competition

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a documented disruptive effect on researchers’ ability to continue planned research activities, particularly community and field-based research. 

The goal of this rapid response call is to accelerate the exploration of new approaches and the development and testing of new directions in research methodologies. It is expected that this call will predominately support new ways of conducting community and field-based research, since the pandemic has had the greatest impact on researchers’ ability to collect data and conduct this type of research.

Applicants should carefully review the materials provided on the opportunity overview page, including: the Notice of Intent to Apply Guide and the Full Application Guide , Best Practices in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Research and the evaluation matrices.
