U-POWER Research Pilot Project Program

The Utah Center for Promotion of Work Equity Research (U-POWER), a NIOSH-funded Center of Excellence in Total Worker Health® is pleased to announce our first annual Research Pilot Project Program (RPPP) grant program! U-POWER is interested in innovative research from any discipline that explores the role of power in defining conditions of work that create inequity in work and affect the safety, health, and well-being of workers and communities. Applicants may request between $5,000 and $15,000 to perform research at any point along the research-to-practice continuum. We anticipate awarding between 2-5 awards during 2021-2022.
