The Meharry-Vanderbilt Community Engaged Research Core invites proposals for activities that promote ongoing, mutually beneficial, health-oriented research partnerships between community organizations and academic researchers.

The long-term goals of the research partnerships supported by mini-grants should be one or more of the following: to improve community health outcomes, to increase access to health and health-related services, to enhance quality and effectiveness of health interventions, and/or to inform future health policy.
Two grant awards are available:
