Regional Connections

Regional Connections

We want to support your research ethics and oversight event!  

PRIM&R’s Regional Connections program provides  grants of up to $1,000 for networking or educational events hosted by PRIM&R members.  

In recent years, PRIM&R is proud to have supported: 

  • Research University – University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center  
  • Black Lives Matter in Research – Montclair State University  
  • Canadian Animal Ethics Coordinators National Meeting 
  • Pacific Northwest (PNW) Regional IRB Forum  
  • The Animal-Human Relationship (Conference) – University of Saskatchewan 
Funding Criteria 
  • The event must be member-facilitated. 

  • The funding application and content of the program should reflect PRIM&R’s mission and the mission of the Regional Connections program. Preference will be given to programs that include a goal of helping build a regional community. 

  • The event should fall outside the scope of normal, day-to-day activities of the sponsoring institution and/or member. 

  • Priority may be given to 1) Nonprofit organizations with demonstrated need; 2) Locales that offer geographic diversity and where PRIM&R has not sponsored events in the past; and/or 3) Applicants not already funded in the current calendar year.
