Meharry-Vanderbilt Community Engaged Research Core seeks mini-grant applicants

Mar. 3, 2021, 7:30 AM

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. Both academic and community partners are expected to contribute to the development of the proposal.

Applicants may propose a community-engaged research project or a capacity-building project that enables the partners to pursue an identified research agenda. 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, increase access to health and health-related services, enhance quality and effectiveness of health interventions, and/or inform future health policy.

The deadline to apply is Friday, March 19.

Two grant awards are available:

  • Partnership Development Grants: up to $2,500 to support the development and strengthening of new community-academic partnerships.
  • Community-Engaged Research Grants: up to $10,000 to enable community-academic research partnerships to undertake pilot research activities.

All applicants must do the following:

  1. Have both a community and academic partner to apply.
  2. Submit an email of intent to Lipham@vumc.org by Friday, March 12, 2021. This should list both the community and academic partner applying, which grant you are applying for, as well as a brief synopsis of your project.
  3. Watch the recorded informational webinar here.
