Two Award Deadlines Coming Soon: Aug. 1 and Sept. 1

The PhRMA Foundation is sending a reminder today of two important deadlines that are approaching.

1.Value Assessment Research Awards

The deadline for Letters of Intent for these awards is Thursday, August 1, 2019.

The Foundation will again be offering funding for innovative research proposals in the area of Value Assessment in 2020. The Foundation is seeking proposals to identify and address challenges in research conducted to assess the value of medicines and health care services.

The Value Assessment Research Awards offer varying levels up to $100,000 in research support for a one-year period beginning January 2020. The level of funding will depend on the scope of proposed activities. Payments are made on a quarterly basis to the institution. A maximum of twenty-percent (20%) of the award may be used for indirect institutional costs.


Award opportunities are open to all individuals and organizations with training in health economics, outcomes research, clinical sciences or health care evaluation. Eligible applicants should hold an advanced degree in a field of study logically or functionally related to the proposed activities, such as a PhD or equivalent. Interdisciplinary collaboration is highly encouraged.

At least one collaborator must also have a firm commitment from an accredited U.S. university or research organization.

How to Apply

The Research Award application process has two stages:

Phase 1: Candidates should submit letters of intent (LOIs) by using this link: no later than August 1, 2019 to initiate the grant application process. LOIs will be reviewed for potential program fit, novelty, importance, rigor and clarity.
