The Greenwall Foundation is requesting proposals for the Spring 2024 cycle of its bioethics grants program, Making a Difference in Real-World Bioethics Dilemmas. The Making a Difference program supports research to help resolve an important emerging or unanswered bioethics problem in clinical, biomedical, or public health decision-making, policy, or practice.

The Foundation’s vision is to make bioethics integral to decisions in health care, policy, and research. Our mission is to expand bioethics knowledge to improve clinical, biomedical, and public health decision-making, policy, and practice. Projects funded under the Making a Difference program should promote the Foundation’s vision and mission through innovative bioethics research that will have a real-world, practical impact.

In addition, the Foundation is committed to building a broad and inclusive bioethics that welcomes everyone, elevates many perspectives, asks a wide range of questions, and learns from diverse voices. For more information on how the Foundation incorporates these values into our grantmaking, read more here.

Priority topics:

  • Bias and discrimination in health care, which may be based on a broad range of characteristics, and which may involve institutional and systemic contributors to bias and racism as well as health disparities or social determinants of health;
  • Trust in science, medicine, and public health;
  • Public health crises (related to, for example, emerging infectious diseases, climate change, and the opioid epidemic), including their impact on mental health;
  • Healthcare access, costs, and resource allocation.

Application Deadline: Letters of Intent due January 2, 2024 by 11:59 pm ET; Proposals due March 11, 2024
