PURPOSE:

Faculty members from an ORAU Sponsoring or Associate Institution or Branch Campus can request up to $800 to facilitate travel by a faculty member.

Criteria for decisions to award travel grants include:

  • Potential engagement of others, especially students
  • Probability of a long-term collaboration
  • New collaboration (proposed partners have no strong current ties)
  • Well-defined outcome(s), such as a proposal to an identified opportunity, a white paper in anticipation of future funding, or a publication as a result of data collected during the visit.

Applications must be for travel to collaborate with researchers at ORNL, Y-12, ORAU laboratories or work sites, or another ORAU institution. This program is not intended to support travel to work with current collaborations or to interact with potential collaborators at locations other than their laboratories, such as conferences. Please note: requests must comply with federal travel expenditure guidelines, and must be submitted BEFORE the travel takes place (no grants will be awarded after the fact).

Within 30 days of the trip, grant recipients will need to send a one-page summary of the outcomes of the trip, including any presentations made, visits with students, other benefits, and anticipated outcomes.

ORGANIZATION LIMITS:

Each ORAU institution may submit two (2) proposals during ORAU’s fiscal year (Oct. 1 - Sept. 30).

BUDGETARY INFORMATION:

Grants may only be used to cover either transportation expenses (train, plane, bus or other) or accommodation expenses.  Other travel-related expenses, such as food, will not be reimbursed.  Travel must be completed by September 30 (the end of ORAU’s fiscal year.)

Anticipated Funding Amount: $800

Indirect cost: not allowed.

PURPOSE:

This initiative supports efforts to enhance capacity to conduct meaningful ongoing, sustainable research and/or research dissemination in the USAPI. These enhancements may occur within the applicant organization as well as partner organizations located in the USAPI. Examples of capacity building activities that may be supported include but are not limited to the following:

  • Enhancements of core facilities, equipment, or personnel to conduct health research.
  • Establishment of networks to facilitate development of new research ideas and initiatives, identification of potential research collaborators, and dissemination of research findings.
  • Development and/or adaption of culturally appropriate data collection instruments, measures, and tools.
  • Development of data systems, repositories and linkages to foster systematic data collection and data sharing.
  • Establishment or enhancement of ethics committees for protection of human subjects at the grantee institution or partner organizations.
  • Technical assistance activities (e.g., workshops, webinars) for personnel from the grantee institution or partner organizations to facilitate collaborative health research efforts.
  • Distance learning and mentorship opportunities to facilitate collaboration across the USAPI or with other domestic partners.

Potential research topic areas may include but are not limited to the following:

  • The incidence/prevalence of infectious and non-communicable chronic disease and of risk factors for these conditions.
  • Type, intensity, and quality of healthcare received.
  • Help-seeking patterns and barriers regarding formal healthcare as well as integrative or indigenous medicine.
  • Community-level health needs that are not adequately addressed by existing community-based preventive or health promotion interventions.

Specific areas of research interest include projects that:

  • Encompass multiple sites across different USAPI.
  • Involve collaboration and/or data collection across multiple service sectors (e.g., public health departments, social service agencies, school systems, community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, etc.)
  • Involve data collection from multiple age groups (e.g., children, adolescents, adults, older adults)
  • Compare health between American Pacific Islanders residing in the USAPI versus the U.S. states.
