Research Funding Opportunity
Grants to Support New Investigators in Conducting Research
Related to Preventing Interpersonal Violence
Impacting Children and Youth (K01)
On December 30, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released
Preventing Interpersonal Violence Impacting Children and Youth. The purpose of CDC’s
National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) Mentored Research Scientist
Development Award (K01) is to provide support for an intensive, mentored career
development experience in conducting violence prevention research.
CDC’s NCIPC intends to commit up to $250,000 in FY2021 to support up to two awards.
Applicants must propose a research project that addresses at least one of the interpersonal
violence prevention research gaps in the NCIPC Research Priorities as they relate to
violence impacting children or youth from birth through age 17. These research priorities
Exposure to violence or other adverse childhood experiences can negatively affect health and development across the lifespan. CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention’s Strategic Vision
includes “addressing factors that cut across multiple forms of violence” as a guiding principle.
Investigators are encouraged to address multiple forms of violence impacting children or youth
when possible. Applicants are expected to identify an experienced mentor who will supervise
the proposed career development and research experience.
