Call for Applications- Native Center for Alcohol Research and Education

We are pleased to share our Call for Applications for the Native Center for Alcohol Research and Education (NCARE) Pilot Project Program.


This Call for Applications is aimed at promoting innovative research projects that focus on reducing the burden of alcohol use disorders (AUDs) in American Indian and Alaska Native communities (AI/AN) and that will subsequently lead to future external funding.

Letters of Intent will be due May 28th, 2021.


In light of the current reality of COVID-19 bringing challenges and opportunities related to public health, interventions, and research, NCARE would like to invite potential applicants to consider research with AI/AN partners that might include:

  • Telemedicine/telehealth interventions

  • Virtual data collection methods

  • Secondary data analysis

  • COVID-19 and alcohol or alcohol associated harms

Impact of negative economic consequences of COVID-19 on Native communities and alcohol use

If you have an idea that you would like to discuss please feel free to reach out to Dr. Michael McDonell: mmcdonell@wsu.edu


While preference will be given to junior investigators, mid-career and senior researchers who have not conducted alcohol intervention research in Native communities are eligible to apply.
