Notice of Upcoming PCORI Engagement Awards Funding Announcement

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) plans to award up to $25 million in fiscal year 2023 as part of the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards. These awards are for research support projects. This program is not a research funding opportunity.

The Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards support projects that encourage active, meaningful involvement of patients, caregivers, clinicians, and other healthcare stakeholders as integral members of the patient-centered outcomes research/comparative clinical effectiveness research (PCOR/CER) enterprise.

The Engagement Award: Stakeholder Convening Support funding opportunity provides support to organizations and communities to hold multi-stakeholder convenings, meetings, and conferences that include a combination of patients, caregivers, researchers, clinicians, purchasers, payers, health system leaders, and/or other stakeholders. Convenings should be designed with the active collaboration and partnership of patients, community groups, and/or other stakeholder organizations. Projects should bring together diverse stakeholders around a central focus or shared priority that unifies stakeholders (e.g., geography, health condition, population) to explore issues related to PCOR/CER or communicate PCORI-funded research findings to targeted end-user audiences.
