The purpose of the ASPiRE Center Dissemination & Implementation (D&I) pilot research program is to advance D&I science and build capacity for D&I research in evidence-based tobacco retail policy.
Pilot grants of $10,000 each are awarded for one year to fund developmental or early-stage work, including pilot data collection and analysis, in preparation for submission for future external funding. Proposals may build on existing ASPiRE research efforts; however, applications focusing on research questions in related areas of D&I and tobacco control are encouraged. Applications for the next cycle will open in the spring of 2022.
