New Grant Opportunity for Community-University Research Projects
CTSI's Community Health Collaborative Grants Program has released a request for applications, and will fund high-impact research projects involving the University and the broader community. It anticipates awarding $25,000-47,500 per project.
The program supports health research collaborations between University of Minnesota investigators and individuals or groups from outside the University, such as nonprofits, healthcare providers, and community advocates.
It's designed to support research projects that ultimately lead to health improvements, while building and sustaining community-University research partnerships. Partner-matching support is available to help community members find University researchers with complementary skills and expertise, as well as connect University researchers to community collaborators.
Mandatory letters of interest are due March 9, with full proposals (by invitation) due April 27.
