CBHS accepting funding applications: The Center for Bioethics, Health, and Society welcomes a wide variety of bioethics proposals. Fundable projects include conceptual or empirical research, course development, community engagement, scholarly events and more. Funding may also be sought for the bioethics component of a scientific project for which funding is being sought from another source, including other Centers and Institutes in the University and Medical Center.
Proposals must be submitted by any Wake Forest University faculty member who is a member of the Center for Bioethics, Health and Society. Center membership is open to all Wake Forest University faculty.* Faculty may collaborate with students or community members, and may request up to $8,000.00 for pilot research, course development, and major events. Up to $5,000.00 per proposal may be budgeted for faculty salary support or stipends.
The due date is the second Monday in January. Projects may begin as early as March 1 of the same year and must be completed by the end of that year’s summer term.
Proposals for smaller activities and single events, with requests up to $1,000.00, may be accepted on a rolling basis at any time subject to funding availability. Please contact Ana Iltis or Nancy King to discuss proposals that do not fit the timeline defined above.
For more information, including a description of the field of bioethics and the kinds of projects that may be considered for funding support, and to apply, please complete the CBHS Funding Application.
