Our global health funding opportunities support faculty and students at the University of Minnesota in their global health endeavors around the world. We have a number of programs that accept applications each year; each of these programs support projects and partners that align with our values on social responsibility.

The following RFPs are now available for spring 2021: 

Global Health Seed Grants

Our Global Health Seed Grant program fosters new interdisciplinary research collaborations to advance new global health research.

Through our Global Health Seed Grants program, we have fostered new interdisciplinary research collaborations to advance new global health research since 2016. Every spring, we request proposals for annual awards up to $25,000 to catalyze innovative global health research projects. We support projects where we are actively exploring opportunities to advance new research opportunities, particularly in Africa, Asia, and Latin America/Caribbean.

The RFP for 2021-2022 Seed Grants is now available. Letters of intent are due by April 30, and full proposals are due May 21. For more information, see application details

Faculty Mentor Awards

Our Faculty Mentor Awards program encourages UMN researchers to include students in their global health research projects to strengthen the next generation of global health practitioners.

Our program builds student skills, knowledge, and abilities in global health research while developing their interpersonal and interprofessional abilities in international settings. Since funding is often an obstacle when considering adding a student to an international research project, we want to reduce the costs and barriers associated with incorporating student learning and training into global health research by providing up to $5,000 to defray these costs. Proposals are encouraged, but not required, to be developed collaboratively between a mentor and student.

Proposals are due Monday, May 17 by 5:00pm.
