Special Projects

Support small scientific conferences and other research dissemination activities. To provide limited rapid support for early investigation into emerging issues in tobacco control or tobacco-related disease research.

NOTE: Applications for requesting these awards will be accepted only 'after' January 2018. Please visit our website or contact our staff for availability, if you are interested in this grant opportunity.

Support can be requested for small scientific conferences to assess tobacco's impact on California populations or to allow tobacco investigators to evaluate, in a timely manner, new and breaking trends in tobacco control or tobacco-related disease research. In order to qualify for funding, the planned activities must be directly related to one or more of TRDRP's research priorities. The activity must take place primarily in California, involve California investigators and include, where applicable, discussants and speakers funded by TRDRP. An online broadcast or archiving of an in-person conference (i.e., webcast or webinar) is eligible for support under this Special Projects award type. Proposals may be submitted at any time and should be submitted on proposalCENTRAL. Applications for Special Project Awards will go through a separate review process. The TRDRP Scientific Advisory Committee will make recommendations regarding funding. Special Project grants will be limited in number, scope, cost and duration. Please contact a TRDRP Program officer regarding the appropriateness of your proposal prior to submission.
