The Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction is accepting research proposals for the Quick Response Program.  This research grant provides funding for up to $3,000 for social scientists to quickly deploy to a disaster-affected area in the aftermath of an extreme weather event or earthquake to collect perishable data.  The program promotes innovation in disaster research by favoring students, new researchers, and novel areas of study.

The program is open to all social scientists at all times, but calls for proposals may be issued by ICLR in the aftermath of significant loss events. Once a proposal is approved, a grant of up to $2,000 will be allocated to support the researchers’ pre-approved travel expenses within Canada and the United States. A maximum of $3,000 is available for an exceptional proposal.

Candidates who wish to apply must submit a three-page research proposal (maximum) consisting of a title, research question(s), proposed methods as well as a description of how data will be collected and analyzed under potentially difficult local conditions. This submission must include a budget (limited to travel expenses), a CV of the applicant(s) and an official letter from the applicant’s university ethics review board approving or waiving the need for approval of the proposed research.
