Lesbian Health Fund
Call for Abstract Submissions
Deadline: May 1, 2017
The Lesbian Health Fund (LHF), a program of GLMA, has its next grant cycle planned for Spring 2017. In honor of the victims of the Orlando shooting, this cycle will give preference to funding research focused on societal and domestic violence affecting sexual minority women or girls.
LHF is currently accepting proposals for research through May 1, 2017.
Founded in 1992, the LHF has awarded more than $860,000 to fund 110 research grants on lesbian health, and is the only US research fund dedicated solely to the unique health needs of lesbians, other sexual minority women (SMW) and their families.
Today, LHF remains committed to improving the health of lesbians and other sexual minority women over the lifespan, from early childhood, through adolescence, and adulthood, including aging. There is still great need to understand how social determinants, especially race and ethnicity, influence the health and wellbeing of lesbians, other SMW and their families.
Priority Research Areas:
- Understanding social, family and interpersonal influences as sources of stress or support
- Eliminating inequalities in health care, including barriers to care, and improving quality of care and utilization rates
- Development and testing of interventions to address mental and physical health needs of lesbians and other SMW, including but not limited to depression, identity related issues, eating disorders, substance abuse, obesity, cancer risks, cardiovascular disease and sexually transmitted infections
- Sexual and reproductive health, including family & parenting issues
Many applications are for small projects ($10,000 – $20,000) structured to provide pilot data for subsequent research. Publication in a peer-reviewed journal is expected, and priority is given to the best proposals with the greatest likelihood of securing future funding from other sources.
Please forward this announcement to anyone who might be interested. GLMA Board Members and LHF Advisory Committee Members or paid consultants are ineligible to submit grants. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 202-600-8037, ext. 304 with any questions.
