The IU Center for Global Health and the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) have officially released the reciprocal innovation demonstration and planning grants. For this round of funding, applications should focus on one of these priority areas:
- Non-communicable diseases, including cancer, diabetes, and hypertension.
- Infant and maternal health
- Infectious diseases, especially HIV, malaria, and COVID-19.
- Mental Health
- Access to quality health care, including health workforce capacity building, health care technologies, health financing, and community-based care.
Eligible proposals are collaborative and must include a principal investigator/project director from an Indiana CTSI partner institution (IU, Purdue, and Notre Dame) and at least one co-investigator or collaborator from a low- or middle-income partner institution.
An informational webinar will be held on Wednesday, February 3 at 9 am EST to provide deeper insight into the RFAs and answer any questions. Please add this to your calendar if you are interested in attending:

Reciprocal Innovation Demonstration Grants – Submission deadline: Monday, March 22, 2021
Awards are up to $50,000 for a period of two years. This award is designed to support research and demonstrate innovations with a high potential to alleviate the health burden of one of the priority areas. Projects should result in high impact solutions that provide reciprocal benefit to the communities Indiana CTSI institutions serve either at home or abroad, as well as a plan to sustain and expand these efforts after the end of support from this RFA.
Reciprocal Innovation Planning Grants – Applications are accepted year-round while funds are available
Awards are up to $10,000 for a period of one year. This award is designed to provide preliminary support for investigators to establish partnerships, develop project teams, identify promising health innovations for demonstration, develop evidence to support the demonstration of a reciprocal innovation in Indiana or at an LMIC partner site, conduct training to prepare for a reciprocal innovation demonstration project, and other activities needed to prepare competitive demonstration grant applications for reciprocal innovation.
