Given current global and local travel restrictions in many countries, we welcome grant applications that include novel ways to collect data, which might include incentives to participants to take part in interviews, or focus groups via digital platforms. Any plans for travel or in-person research should be based on a realistic assessment of COVID-19 risks/regulations. Where Travel or Lodging costs are included they cannot consist of more than 10% of the overall grant requested.
