The Craig H. Neilsen Foundation will accept Letters of Intent (LOIs) beginning on February 8, 2018 for the 2019 cycle of their Psychosocial Research Grants. The goal of this program is to develop sound data to inform and disseminate best practices that produce better outcomes, improving quality of life for people living with Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI). This includes research: 1) focused on the influence of psychological and social factors on an individual’s health, functioning or quality of life; 2) addressing the interrelation of psychological (e.g., behavioral, emotional, cognitive) and social (e.g., interpersonal, community, environmental) factors with health, disability, participation and other quality of life factors relevant to people living with SCI; 3) developing and testing the effectiveness of interventions, and feasibility of implementing them. PSR topics can address issues faced by persons with SCI across the lifespan, including targeted SCI subgroups or specific aspects of psychological and social support factors that impact health, functioning or quality of life. The PSR portfolio areas of emphasis include, but are not limited to, research on aging, caregiving (formal and informal networks), employment/work, health behaviors and fitness, independent living/lifestyle, self-management/self-care, and technology access. Research can involve qualitative and/or quantitative methodologies.

Updated application guidelines for the 2019 grant cycle will be provided on February 8, 2018.
