2022 I-ACT for Children Educational Grant Program

As part of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute's (CTSI-CN) partnership with the Institute For Advanced Clinical Trials For Children (I-ACT), we receive numerous clinical research education and funding opportunities that may be of interest to our research faculty and staff. 


As part of these efforts, we are pleased to announce the official call for applications for the 2022 I-ACT for Children Educational Grant Program.


The I-ACT for Children Educational Grant Program supports the continuing education of those involved in pediatric clinical trial research. Specifically, the program is designed to support the attendance of an early-stage investigator, study nurse or coordinator, research administrator, or research administration staff member who supports pediatric clinical trials at a relevant research conference or course. 


This year, I-ACT for Children is supporting a total of two grants*, up to $2,000 each, which will be awarded to support attendance at a relevant research conference, course, or educational program as follows: 


  • One (1) early-stage investigator - Candidate must hold an academic (or equivalent) rank below associate professor (e.g., assistant professors, instructors, postdocs, fellows, and students)
  • One (1) research support staff member - Study nurse or coordinator, research administrator or research administration staff member who supports pediatric clinical trials

* Please note – Not more than one (1) grant will be awarded to any single institution. Previous recipients of an I-ACT for Children Travel or Educational Grant may not apply.
