East Meets West: Seed grant program for collaborations
Letters of intent are due June 3 for the UIC Global Health and Well Being Seed Grant, which funds collaborations across campus.
The grant fosters new trans-disciplinary and mixed and multiple methods research in global health and well-being. The program is sponsored by the UIC Global Excellence Task Force, the College of Medicine’s Center for Global Health and Great Cities Institute.
Grants will be awarded for new hypothesis-driven pilot research with a substantial likelihood of gaining external funding or for projects that will be completed with a limited budget.
Full-time faculty from any department can apply for the grant. Applications must involve at least two colleges representing both the east and west sides of campus. Only one college can be from the health sciences.
Awards will be given for up to $15,000 for one year, with an additional $5,000 if matched by the involved colleges, departments or centers.
Applications are due July 15 and awards will be announced in September.
