Small Study Program

CPWR is not accepting applications at this time. Please check back in the fall (2019).

CPWR’s Small Study Program provides seed money of up to $30,000 to investigate promising new research initiatives. Many major research projects began with a small study to demonstrate their viability or test their approach. Others resulted in important stand-alone projects.  A survey of researchers funded under this Program found that more than 60% had published their findings in peer reviewed journals.

We encourage innovative research proposals focused on:

  • Getting best practices adopted – research to practice (r2p) 

  • Addressing emerging issues and exploring new technologies

  • Safety culture and safety climate

  • Disseminating safety and health information to specific audiences

  • Exploring innovative or new directions in construction sciences

  • Reaching high risk sectors: small employers, vulnerable workers, residential and light commercial construction
