Grants Available for Family Well-Being Research


The Family Well-Being Research Network (FAMNET) announces pilot grants for research on the measurement of family well-being. A collaborative effort among HSPH, the University of Michigan, and the University of Pittsburgh, FAMNET is an NIH-funded research network devoted to studying family well-being across the lifespan (1U24HD107562). FAMNET seeks to develop and advance new ideas and scalable approaches to contribute to the measurement and foundational knowledge of family well-being. Encompassing a lifespan perspective, eligible topics under this funding opportunity will range from childhood quality of life through and including older adults’ well-being, with an emphasis on family-focused metrics and analytic strategies.

FAMNET seeks applications for Pilot Projects (up to $10,000/project) and Research Scholars, who will work with an assigned or chosen mentor ($4,000/year). Applications will open in December, 2021 on a rolling basis with initial awards made in February, 2022.

Complete details available in this Request for Applications. A virtual informational session will be held on December 6, 2021, 12:00 PM eastern time; register for the informational session (this event has passed).
