CGHSR released the 2021 RFP for Global Health Seed Grants to fund new interdisciplinary research collaborations to advance new global health research. 

Every spring, CGHSR requests proposals for annual awards up to $25,000 to catalyze innovative global health research projects. CGHSR supports projects where we are actively exploring opportunities to advance new research opportunities, particularly in Africa, Asia, and Latin America/Caribbean.

Our Global Health Seed Grant program plants seeds to grow larger studies and international partnerships. The program also provides a unique entree for UMN students into global health research with invaluable hands-on experiences. We have also seen demonstrated success through long-term outcomes like advancing equitable international research collaborations and effective and innovative interdisciplinary health science research.
