Quick Response Grant Program

Postdisaster Studies Sponsored by the
Natural Hazards Center

The Quick Response Grant Program provides funds for researchers to quickly travel to disaster-affected areas to capture perishable data. In addition to expanding academic knowledge, funded researchers submit brief reports that make preliminary analyses of recent events available to the Hazards Center's multidisciplinary network of researchers, practitioners, and educators. The program promotes innovation in disaster research by favoring students, new researchers, and novel areas of study.
