CARRA-Arthritis Foundation Data Analysis Support Grant

CARRA-Arthritis Foundation Data Analysis Support Grant
This funding opportunity is available to researchers to support qualitative or quantitative data analyses on existing CARRA datasets from collaborative research projects. Limited funds (up to $10,000 in total costs) may be requested to complete a fixed set of tasks that will result in timely publication of results. The investigator should have the data in hand at the time of the application submission. It is anticipated that funds will be used for statistician effort/fee for service to support database cleaning and/or statistical analyses. Funds are not to be used for collecting additional data, investigator effort for drafting manuscripts, publication or printing costs. This grant mechanism is not for collecting data but rather for analyzing and publishing data that already exists. This mechanism ONLY supports the analysis of CARRA-related datasets. Any proposed work using datasets outside of CARRA is not eligible.
  • Up to 5 grants will be awarded in per year and are considered on a rolling basis until 5 are awarded: simply complete the application and submit your request.
  • The funding limit is $10,000.
  • A given investigator can only apply for one Data Analysis Support grant per year.
  • A given investigator may also be a recipient of a CARRA-Arthritis Foundation large or small grant.
  • Preference will be given to research that is collaborative in nature and uses CARRA infrastructure.
  • A final progress report is required no later than 45 days after the project period end date.
  • Awardees are expected to submit an abstract and attend the CARRA Annual Meeting until project is complete/final results are presented.
  • If the project is not completed within the project period, the award recipient may request a no-cost extension (NCE) for up to 12 months. Recipient must submit a No-Cost Extension Request Form no more than 90 days prior, and no less than 30 days prior, to the project period end date and include a satisfactory plan for completion. An interim progress report is required as part of the no-cost extension request.
