Fellowships and grants to USA and Canada nonprofit academic institutions and rehabilitation facilities for medical research. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Research should focus on psychological, biological, and social factors affecting individuals living with spinal cord injuries (SCI).
The goal of the funding portfolio is to develop sound data to inform and disseminate best practices that produce better outcomes, improving quality of life for people living with SCI. This research explores the interrelation of behavioral, social and psychological factors that influence participation, health practice, lifestyle, and support systems in community and clinical settings.
Emphasis is placed on research directed towards:
PSR topics can address issues that reflect the diversity of people with SCI across the lifespan, including targeted SCI subgroups or specific aspects of psychological, environmental and social support factors that impact health, functioning or quality of life. The PSR portfolio areas of emphasis include, but are not limited to, research on aging, caregiving (formal and informal networks), employment/work, health behaviors and fitness, independent living/lifestyle, self-management/selfcare, and technology access. Research can involve qualitative and/or quantitative methodologies.
For examples of relevant research topics that could have widespread impact on the field, see https://chnfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/PSR-2021-AG_FINAL.pdf#page=4.
Applications to this portfolio must be research-oriented and psychosocial in their focus. The Neilsen Foundation encourages submissions across a wide range of disciplines; however, it is strongly encouraged that relevant SCI and psychosocial expertise are represented on the project team.
