RCHE provides research funding to a select number of research projects each year. Funded projects must fall within the center's research focus areas, and reflect the center mission to transform healthcare delivery. Funding proposals are reviewed periodically. Selection depends on a variety of factors including available funds, demonstration of future funding potential, and proximity to center research focus.
Purdue faculty are invited to submit proposals using the templates below. For questions or to discuss a project, please call the center at (765) 494-1531 to request a meeting.
Proposal submission and templates
All proposals must use RCHE's RFP Proposal Template. The V-A-L-I-D project criteria described below form the basis of the RFP evaluation. Please use the appropriate proposal template:
