Apply for UC Firearm Violence Research Center (UCFC) Grants

The University of California Firearm Violence Research Center (UCFC) is the first state-funded center for firearm violence research, founded to address gaps in knowledge on firearm violence and its prevention. The UC Davis Violence Prevention Research Program, which for more than thirty years has conducted firearm research and policy development, will closely work with UCFC and provide unique opportunities. In addition to rigorous research on firearm violence, UCFC is dedicated to its role in policy development, public dissemination of research findings, training of new investigators in the field of firearm violence, and supporting non-UCFC investigators conducting firearm violence research through its small grants program.

In 2020, UCFC will accept proposals for grants to support research that explores the causes of firearm violence and evaluates strategies and interventions for reducing firearm-related harm.

  • Primary Research Grant Award Program (Large Grants Program) Up to $75,000
  • Secondary Research Grant Award Program (Small Grants Program) Up to $10,000
