Through our Small Grants Program, the Armstrong Institute supports the efforts of faculty and staff across Johns Hopkins Medicine to lead projects that seek to improve safety, quality and value in health care. We award funding for cross-disciplinary and innovative research relevant to the institute’s mission.
Applicants can apply for funding to:
- Enable staff members and/or faculty to develop a research project
- Develop a pilot project to the point that a competitive application for external support can be obtained
- Support core personnel who can facilitate cross-disciplinary research (e.g., clinical outcomes coordinator, computer specialist, biostatistician)
- Purchase equipment that will enable a new line of research to be investigated
Program on Hold
The next round of funding was scheduled to begin in August 2013. However, in late March the institute made the difficult decision to put the Small Grants Program on hold for the next six months, due to budget pressures. We will keep the Johns Hopkins Medicine community informed of the status of this program.
