Hopkins’ Economics of Alzheimer’s Disease & Services Center

Request for Applications

Four One-Year Pilot Grants - Application Deadline: February 1, 2021 11:59 PM (EST)

The Hopkins’ Economics of Alzheimer’s Disease & Services (HEADS) Center stimulates and coalesces population-based research that identifies, quantifies, and addresses economic and care systems challenges posed by Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD).

We invite applications for pilot grants related to our two themes:

  1. To identify and quantify the range of care needs of persons with ADRD and the economic consequences of ADRD for patients and families.

  2. To examine how the organization, financing, and delivery of services affects accessibility, affordability, quality, and equity of ADRD care.

We expect to award 4 one-year pilot grants of up to $25,000 per award in the coming 2021-2022 cycle. We are particularly interested in supporting promising post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty, but applicants may be of any rank from Johns Hopkins University and external institutions. Learn more about current pilot projects here.

Download the Request for Applications for full details and application instructions. Applicants will be notified of funding decisions on or around April 1, 2021.
