We are pleased to announce the 3rd round of the The UIC Global Health and Well Bei
Grants will be made for new hypothesis driven pilot research with a substantial likelihood of gaining external funding or that can be completed with a limited budget. Priority will be given to projects that:
- address global health and well-being research priorities;
- integrate multiple elements which can include, for example, biomedical science, social science, humanities, architecture, art, communications, urban planning, business, criminal justice, diversity, social justice and engineering;
- incorporate mixed and multiple methods;
- include investigators from both UIC’s East and West campuses.
This opportunity is open to full time tenure and non-tenure track faculty from any department. Applications must involve a minimum of 2 colleges representing both East and West campuses – only one of which can be from the health sciences. Each award will be a base maximum of $15K for one year; up to an additional $5 K will be awarded if matched 1:1 by the involved colleges, departments, or centers.
