Future Research Projects

2022 Grant

FHER has allocated $30,000 for research grant funding for the 2022 fiscal year. Depending on the grant applications submitted, the whole award amount may be dedicated to one research project or may be divided over multiple projects.

For the 2022 cycle, FHER is accepting research grant applications on three topics: building flexibility for future change, design and telehealth, and emergency department design for pandemic conditions.

The FHER grant opportunity is open to applicants from both the public and private sector.

Favorable consideration will be given to research proposals that are carefully planned to result in shareable knowledge that supports design practice. That said, most successful applications include or are comprised of individuals with formal, advanced training in research methods.
