CTCRI Idea and Policy Research Grant Programs

Idea Grants are designed to encourage unique or original research that
has the potential to advance knowledge in this area. Grants will allow
investigators with novel ideas and observations to conduct pilot
studies, perform secondary analysis of data sets, or gather new
evidence necessary to determine the viability of novel research
directions or hypotheses.

Policy Research Grants are intended to stimulate research that will
influence and guide policy decisions in tobacco control or have a
direct impact on policy decisions in tobacco control.

The value of the Idea and Policy grants are, respectively, $50,000 for one year and $80,000 for two years.

October 1, 2006, is the next deadline.  More information on the application process can be accessed at and any questions or concerns can be directed to
