Request for Proposals: Global Health Seed Grants

The Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility (CGHSR) requests proposals for Global Health Seed Grants, funding that advances equitable global health research.

The deadline for full proposals is May 17, 2024. Interested applicants should submit a letter of intent by April 26, 2024.

Global Health Seed Grants offer funding of up to $25,000 and are meant to catalyze innovative global health research projects. All University of Minnesota faculty are welcome to apply.

Applications must focus on health research studies and incorporate CGHSR’s values of social responsibility. Proposed studies should take place in Africa, Asia, Latin America, or the Caribbean.

Preference will be given to proposals that include:

  • Interdisciplinary studies – PI and co-investigators with diverse expertise from a variety of health science disciplines
  • Locally relevant research – Greater potential for impact on health issues of significance in the partner country
  • Long-term prospects – Pilots, or preliminary studies with the goal of gathering data for larger, long-term studies
  • Student involvement – UMN and/or host-country student(s) in research activities (student travel allowable, but not required)

This year, CGHSR is particularly interested in research that focuses on air pollution or the intersection of human health and climate change.

Details, including the RFP, can be found on the Global Health Seed Grant webpage.
