Application deadline extended to April 30 for Indigenous Trauma & Resilience Research Center pilot projects

The Indigenous Trauma & Resilience Research Center (ITRRC) is requesting applications for their pilot projects program. These one-year pilot grants of up to $75,000 are designed to fund research addressing the impact of historical and unresolved trauma on health inequities within the American Indian and Alaska Native populations. All basic science/clinical/translational/population health or other faculty members throughout UND are encouraged to apply. Pilot funding priorities are given to tenure-track, junior investigators.

The ITRRC is funded through the Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) program of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The goals of this program are to develop a critical mass of investigators competitive for peer-reviewed external research funding and establish research centers in states with historically low levels of NIH funding.

Applications are due Saturday April 30, 2022. Visit for more information.
