Funding Opportunities

The Behavioral Research Program (BRP) provides funding support for a comprehensive program of research ranging from basic behavioral research to the development, testing, and dissemination of interventions in areas including, but not limited to: tobacco use, screening, dietary behavior, sun protection, emotion regulation, and physical activity. In addition to supporting investigator-initiated research grants, BRP sponsors or co-sponsors a variety of targeted funding opportunity announcements (FOAs). BRP also offers grantsmanship resources to individual investigators from the pre-submission phase through the grant close-out.
