Fall Grant Opportunities
The Healthy Foods, Healthy Lives (HFHL) Institute invites letters of interest and proposals for two fall funding opportunities:
The Community-University Partnership Grant Program seeks to fund innovative community-university partnerships related to food, nutrition, and health. Projects should include participatory action research*, or other creative strategies for addressing community-identified problems by bringing together academic and community partners. Proposals should seek to benefit communities by producing information that will enable a community to improve its overall health. To that end, funding may be used for traditional research projects or community-based programs that are rigorously evaluated.
* Characteristics of community-based participatory research that should be considered: maximizing participation of and leadership by people living in the participating community; involving diverse community members in key decisions throughout the project; creating learning opportunities by involving community members; utilizing community members, trained researchers, and students in the research design.
The Faculty Planning Grant Program supports the development of University interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research teams related to food, nutrition, and health. Planning Grant award recipients must work towards the preparation and submission of a grant proposal in the spring HFHL funding cycle OR proposals may be prepared and submitted to other equivalent University sources, as well as major government or private sources.
PLEASE NOTE: After the initial review process, teams may be invited for 30-minute interviews with the review committee. ALL TEAM MEMBERS ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN TEAM INTERVIEWS.
