New information is available on the first request for proposals (RFP) to be released on January 7 by The National Collaborative on Gun Violence Research.

This round of funding will award up to $10 million for scientific research on U.S. gun policy and gun violence prevention.

The collaborative expects to grant 10 to 25 awards, including three or more dissertation support awards of $25,000.

Gun policy and gun violence prevention research proposals that will be considered include:

  • Research on gun ownership, use, violence, injuries, suicide, markets and related topics
  • Strategies and interventions for preventing gun violence, and their effectiveness
  • Projects seeking to collect and disseminate new data resources to support research.

The RFP will be available at ncgvr.org on January 7. Applicants will then have thirty days to submit a short letter of interest describing their proposed research study.

It will be the first of four annual grant-funding cycles for the collaborative.
