PCORI Funding Awards
PCORI awards funding for research and other programmatic initiatives in several ways. Our primary research funding is awarded through PCORI Funding Announcements (PFAs), broad calls for projects under our five National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda as well as “targeted” announcements on specific high-priority topics, and special one-time funding opportunities. We also offer the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards and Pipeline to Proposal awards; these are not research awards but are designed to better integrate patients and other stakeholders into the research process.
All proposed projects, including requested budgets and project periods, are approved subject to a programmatic and budget review by PCORI staff and negotiation of a formal award contract.
