The objective of the New Investigator Research Award, supported by The Center for Health Design Research Coalition, is to support high quality research studies by new investigators in the field of evidence-based healthcare facility design. The award is open to Ph.D. students, and other recent research degree recipients whose early contributions reflect their potential to create, promote, and disseminate research that supports therapeutic, safe, efficient, and effective healthcare settings.

The goal of the award is to support new researchers whose research is likely to fill critical gaps in the field of evidence-based design (EBD). All applications will undergo a thorough peer-review process, conducted by the Research Coalition.

Award: The Center for Health Design will present one award of $10,000 to a researcher in the early phases of their career. The award recipient will receive free registration to attend Health Design Conference where they will have the opportunity to present their completed study. The award recipient will be designated a member of CHD’s Research Coalition for one year.

Eligibility: Investigators from research and academic institutions, and professional practice, are encouraged to apply. Applicants should either currently be a Ph.D. candidate or someone who has graduated with a research degree within the past three years (2009) and is currently engaged in conducting research in practice or in academia.

Ph.D. candidates may submit their Ph.D. thesis projects for consideration provided it has already been presented to and approved by their thesis committees. Thesis concepts or unapproved proposals will not be reviewed. For applicants submitting their Ph.D. thesis projects we suggest that their studies are in early phases (e.g. data collection) rather than final stages of completion (data analysis, writing up). All applicants should submit a fully developed research proposal of not more than twelve pages.

Complete details are available here.

Deadline: The submission deadline is January 15, 2013. Submissions should be emailed to Shannon Roecklein at
