Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International early career scientists for research projects related to health and pollution. All applicants must contact the Funding Source and submit a preliminary application prior to applying. Research projects often are interdisciplinary in nature and span a range of scientific fields, including atmospheric science, epidemiology, exposure science, statistics, and toxicology.

In considering potential research topics, applicants should be aware of HEI’s current areas of interest, as described in the draft HEI Strategic Plan for the Health Effects of Air Pollution 2020-2025. The new Plan focuses on four key areas: (1) Accountability: testing the links between air quality and health; (2) Complex questions for the complex air pollution mixture; (3) Transportation and urban health; and (4) Global health. Appendix A in Supporting Documents below includes sections of the Strategic Plan 2015-2020 that describe HEI’s current research priorities and plans for implementing them. 

HEI studies have used a wide range of designs: modeling, methods development, experiments with cell cultures, animal studies, controlled human exposure studies, and epidemiologic investigations. In all studies, accurate characterization of exposure and appropriate statistical analyses are important. HEI’s ultimate goal is to provide scientific evidence that can be used in regulatory decisions or provide better information for risk assessment; thus, human studies and studies to improve extrapolation from animals to humans are an important part of HEI’s program.

HEI encourages investigators to submit applications addressing these high priority research areas. However, HEI realizes that other areas of research may lead to results important to its mission. For this reason, they will also consider particularly innovative or high-quality applications in other areas that are relevant to the overall goals of HEI’s program.

The funds can be used to provide salary support for the investigator and supporting junior personnel as well as operating costs, including supplies and equipment. It is expected that the investigator will devote at least 25% of his or her time on the proposed research.
