Penn State’s Child Maltreatment Solutions Network is supporting a new funding opportunity to support research addressing child maltreament.
The funding will support the formation of research groups to develop new research projects and that could lead to development of colloquiums, annual meetings, seminars, or seek additional funding through external sources.
Proposals may address the research, education, awareness, or translation of child maltreatment science, examine complex issues related to child maltreatment, address DEIB and justice-related issues relevant to child maltreatment, and form interdisciplinary networks, forums, or incubators to examine these issues and explore new solutions.
Projects should prioritize support for junior faculty, graduate students, or postdoctoral trainees, CMAS undergraduate students, as well as for new interdisciplinary connections and research.
The Solutions Networks anticipates supporting 4 to 6 working groups for the 2023 – 2024 academic year. Proposals are due August 1, however applications may be accepted and reviewed throughout the year to accommodate groups ready to respond to emerging funding opportunities.
Established in 2012, the Child Maltreatment Solutions Network, part of the Social Science Research Institute, is a national leader in research designed to influence public policy that better protects vulnerable children from abuse.
