|UW Series on Homelessness
Through the leadership of CSDE Affiliate Amy Hagopian, the Center for Health Innovation and Policy Science (CHIPS) is hosting a series of four seminars focused on approaches to addressing homelessness with research insights and lessons learned. CSDE is co-sponsoring the seminar series. The first seminar on January 19 will focus on UW’s Tent City 3 experiences. On February 16 the seminar will focus on harm reduction solutions through meeting people where they are Seattle. The focus of the third seminar on April 20 will be UW undergraduate alum Graham Pruss’ innovative insights on vehicular residencies. Finally, the fourth seminar on May 18 will focus on homelessness and refusal politics. Please join the seminars via zoom and stay posted on the in-person meeting location via the QR code shown here.

CSDE Early Career Grant Working Group – consider joining!
Are you an early-career (pre-promotion) faculty member or post-doc who is thinking about writing a grant? Perhaps you're just beginning to ponder the idea but don't know where to start - or maybe you're already experienced and still need some information, ideas, or moral support. If so, then you should join CSDE's Early Career Grant Working Group! We meet monthly in a hybrid (in-person in Raitt Hall and on Zoom) on third Thursdays from 1:30-2:30. Please email Steve Goodreau (email@example.com) to be added to the mailing list and event invitation.
Please note: membership is focused on CSDE affiliates (any UW campus or external) who are in any kind of faculty position prior to their first major promotion (to associate or equivalent), as well as to post-docs or other early-career research scientists working directly with CSDE affiliates. If you have a question about your eligibility, please email Steve Goodreau (firstname.lastname@example.org).(read more)
Call for CSDE Proposals: Population Research Planning Grants
CSDE has funds available to provide a variety of forms of support for affiliates submitting grants from now through this summer. This might include funding for hiring an RA (quarterly or hourly), hosting or hiring consultants from inside or outside UW, hiring CSDE scientific staff, acquiring data sets, organizing a mini-workshop or writing retreat, or many other possibilities! One key restriction, however, is that funds cannot be used for faculty salary support or course buyout.
Applications are rolling, and CSDE's core leadership will review proposals every two weeks until the funds are exhausted. Early applications are encouraged!
