Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $50,000 to USA and Canada nonprofit organizations and IHEs for activities that address, and work to mitigate, the adverse effects of climate change on health. Funding is intended to support early-stage projects that connect scholars from diverse fields. Funds may be used to develop sustainable systems for healthcare and biomedical research, prepare for weather-related crises, conduct public outreach and educational programs, and other climate/health-related activities.

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund aims to stimulate the growth of new connections between scholars working in largely disconnected fields who might together change the course of climate change’s impact on human health. Funding will support small, early-stage grants toward achieving this goal. Grants may connect scholars, practitioners, educators, and/or communicators working to understand, spread the word about, and mitigate the impacts of climate change on human health.

The  Burroughs Wellcome Fund is interested in the following:

  • Linking basic/early biomedical science to climate-focused thinking
  • Sustainability in health care systems, health care delivery outside institutions, and biomedical research
  • Health impacts and health systems impacts of extreme weather events and other crises
  • Outreach, communication, and education around climate and human health

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund is particularly but not exclusively interested in activities that build connections between basic/early biomedical scientific approaches and ecological, environmental, geological, geographic, and planetary-scale thinking, as well as with population-focused fields including epidemiology and public health, demography, economics, and urban planning. Also of interest is work piloting new approaches or new interactions toward reducing the impact of health-centered activities, for example, developing more sustainable systems for health care, care delivery, and biomedical research systems.

Another area of interest is preparation for the impacts of extreme weather and other crises that can drive large scale disruptions that will immediately impact human health and delivery of health care. Public outreach, climate communication, and education efforts focused on the intersection of climate and health are also appropriate for this call.

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$1,000,000

Number of Grants:

$2,500 - $50,000

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applications must be submitted by non-profit organizations or degree granting institutions in the United States or Canada.

Applicant organizations may submit multiple proposals, but an individual may only serve as a principal investigator/project director on one application during each review period. Individuals may only serve twice as directors (principal investigators/project directors) for proposals supported over time by this program.

Awardees and past awardees from other BWF programs are eligible to apply.

This call focuses on developing partnerships. Proposals from single institutions must develop partnerships that do not already occur naturally; for example, proposals from departments that draw students from the same shared graduate program are not responsive to this call. Proposals from more than one institution are responsive. Academic institutions, professional societies, and advocacy organizations are only a few of the appropriate drivers of proposals. Only non-profit institutions may be supported by BWF’s award, but non-profits may involve for profit organizations in their proposals.

This program does not support biomedical research projects proposed by individual investigators.

Pre-Application Information:

Application deadline: June 29, 2022 by 4:00 pm ET

Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis from September 1, 2021 through August 30, 2023. A review will be conducted quarterly. After each quarterly review, the funding source will support, decline, or send proposals back to applicants for revision, but may hold some proposals over for a future review. Recommended revisions may include suggestions that separate groups of applicants submitting similar proposals work together to develop a single proposal or that applicants consider becoming involved in efforts aligned with work funded in earlier quarters.
