Small Study Program

CPWR’s Small Study Program provides seed money of up to $30,000 to investigate promising new research initiatives. Many major research projects began with a small study to demonstrate their viability or test their approach. Others resulted in important stand-alone projects.  A survey of researchers funded under this Program found that more than 60% had published their findings in peer reviewed journals.

CPWR is currently accepting applications. See the Funding Opportunity Announcement for details or contact:
