CARRA-AF Publication Support Grants

The CARRA-AF Publication Support Grant mechanism is intended to assist CARRA investigators with projects in need of support for the analyses of existing data sets. 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 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.
