The UW Center for Child and Family Well-Being is pleased to announce the availability of small pilot grants in the area of Mindfulness, specifically as it relates to the promotion of positive development and well-being of children and families. This funding opportunity is in alignment with a new CCFW area of emphasis in Mindful Living and Practice.

Grants are designed to assist UW faculty members (or those with equivalent titles) in obtaining preliminary findings, testing "proof of concept," or conducting other research activities designed to prepare and support competitive, full-scale grant applications. Projects are one year in length, with a possible no-cost extension. Direct costs of $10,000 may be requested.
