The IASP Developing Countries Project provides grants of up to $10,000 that support improving pain education and practice in developing countries.
Some types of grant projects include:
- Combining practical instruction with the latest research
- Developing written teaching materials
- Creating online learning programs
- Developing or implementing policy changes on pain education and practice in hospitals, universities, governments, or other places
- Applications should be for one-year projects that are ready to begin within three months of the application deadline.
- Grants will not be awarded for projects that are in the planning stages.
- Projects must have specific start and end dates.
- Applicants must identify the total funds necessary for the project and any additional sources of funding. Projects may not total more than US$10,000.
- Projects that are multidisciplinary in nature are particularly desirable, although this is not essential.
- Preference is given to candidates from low-income and low-middle income countries, as defined by the World Bank. Candidates meeting these criteria are especially encouraged to apply.
