The CPCoE has created Capacity Building Initiatives (CBIs) to support research in fields related to Veterans’ chronic pain. The CBIs were created to support individual students completing research at the Master’s or doctoral level. The aim of the CBI program is to support and increase the number of researchers whose research is relevant to Veterans living with chronic pain. This investment in evidence generation will help to deepen the field of research and will provide critical support to the next generation of researchers in the field.

There are 3 awards of $20,000 available for Master’s and PhD level students. The awards Master’s awards are for 2 years (totaling $40,000) and the PhD award is available for 3 years (totaling $60,000).
