Eligibility is based on being a trainee of a CHERISH investigator/affiliate or being nominated by one. How does the nomination process usually look like?
You do not need to have a sponsor in place to apply or submit a letter of intent (LOI). After reviewing your LOI, we can connect you to a potential sponsor within CHERISH. If you are not already connected to a CHERISH Research Affiliate or someone from our network, please reach out to us.
What should I ask from a sponsor (e.g., letter of support or co-authorship)?
At the minimum, a sponsor can review your proposal and acknowledge in a letter of support that your project is consistent with NIH’s priorities for health economics and a good fit for the CHERISH pilot grant. They do not need specify a time, FTE, or co-authorship commitment.
Can I apply with a global health project, or should it be a domestic project?
You can propose research that has a global perspective. However, the institution must be U.S.-based.
