What types of projects are NOT a good fit for E4A?

As a research funding program, E4A does not fund activities associated with implementing or carrying out interventions or general organizational operations. We have also identified some examples of research that are not a good fit with the program objectives: descriptive or exploratory science (i.e., research into an issue that has not yet been extensively studied with the intention of identifying priorities, developing operational definitions, and improving future research around the issue); literature reviews; needs assessments; development and validation of screening tools; basic biomedical inquiry; drug therapy or device research; animal or plant science. Finally, research that does not acknowledge or address underlying causes of health and racial inequities in society, such as structural racism or other forms of discrimination, is not a good fit.
