Deadline: August 12, 2020 by 5 p.m.
You are cordially invited to submit seed grant pre-proposals to the Cognitive Empowerment Program. The vision of the Cognitive Empowerment Program (CEP) is to revolutionize the experience of people affected by Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) by creating a comprehensive approach that can be replicated nationally and internationally. With the aim of speeding up development, testing and dissemination of evidence-based interventions for MCI, the Innovation Accelerator (IA) core is offering seed grants to support research in the following areas: therapeutic programming, technology and the built environment.
The funded projects should result in innovative solutions, strategies or methodologies developed through a culture of collaboration among students, researchers, clinicians and people with MCI in less than 12 months’ time. Proposals can range from semester to year-long research projects and smaller proposals can target funds to convene valuable discussions, gather data, develop methods and metrics or to prototype new designs and technologies. See the attached call for pre-proposals document for more information on how to apply. All pre-proposals will be evaluated by a review committee comprised of representatives from all cores of the CEP as well as individuals affected by MCI. Those selected for full proposals will be contacted by the end of the day on September 4.
Lastly, there will be an info session on July 21st from 9am – 10am. The purpose of the session is to provide an update about the CEP, inform you about our research interests and answer any questions that you may have about the CEP or the seed grant process. You can access the info session at https://bluejeans.com/9277062884. For additional information or questions regarding the seed grant process email Kimberly Bass Seaton at email@example.com.
Looking forward to reading your pre-proposals,
Jennifer DuBose, CEP's Innovation Accelerator Director
