Now open for applications: Grants for Collaborative Research on Environment and Health in China. Deadline: September 1
The collaborative grants program was started in 2008 to stimulate new research on environment and health in China that is directly linked to policy and practice, to encourage collaboration across disciplines, and to help develop a network of scholars working in this field.
Each year 7–8 grants of $10,000–$15,000 are given to Chinese institutes for projects that:
Each project must address an environmental health problem that affects a substantial number of people, and it must be clearly useful in generating or disseminating knowledge that will inform policy or the work of government or civil society actors. In order to ensure feasibility, applicants must demonstrate the necessary access to data, or relationships with local communities or government agencies, to conduct the project successfully. If the project is being carried out at the local level, researchers must either live and work in the same province, or otherwise demonstrate how the project will build local capacity to work on environment and health issues.
