Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute: Engagement Awards (multiple opportunities)

The Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards support projects that encourage active, meaningful involvement of patients, caregivers, clinicians, and other healthcare stakeholders as integral members of the patient-centered outcomes research/comparative clinical effectiveness research (PCOR/CER) enterprise. These awards are for research support projects. This program does not fund research studies.

PCORI strongly encourages applicants to acquaint themselves with PCORI’s definition of PCOR/CER prior to submitting an application to the Engagement Awards. All proposed projects under this opportunity must demonstrate a connection to building capacity for PCOR and CER.

Engagement Award: Stakeholder Convening Support

Applicants may propose projects for up to one year in duration and up to $100,000 in total costs. 

Engagement Award: Dissemination Initiative
This opportunity aims to support projects that help organizations and communities  plan for or actively bring pertinent PCORI-funded research findings to their specific audiences, including relevant patients, clinicians, communities, and others, in ways that will command their attention and interest and encourage use of this information in their healthcare decision making. Applicants may propose projects up to two years in duration and up to $250,000 in total costs.

Engagement Award: Capacity Building
This opportunity aims to support projects that help communities increase their facility with and ability to participate across all phases of the PCOR/CER process. Applicants may propose projects for up to two years in duration and up to $250,000 in total costs.
