Research, Project, and Proposal Support
Would support for your next engaged research project be helpful? If so, contact CGHE. Our faculty affiliates and staff are experienced in coordinating events; managing projects; crafting effective communication materials; and facilitating interdisciplinary, collaborative projects and research, as well as co-produced knowledge in engaged research projects.
2021 Call for Proposals
CGHE micro-grants are a mechanism for faculty to push their research to its next phase and should increase their capacity to submit competitive proposals. Projects must focus on health inequities within Global South communities. That is to say, occurring within low- and middle-income countries and/or among marginalized and minoritized populations within the United States.
Co-produced research awards support the development and advancement of co-produced knowledge. By “co-produced,” we mean knowledge that is developed under the auspices of a cooperative, mutually-respectful relationship between people whose practice springs from academia and those whose expertise arises from lived-experience within a given community. CGHE will team projects proposed by faculty/student and community partners that result in a co-produced product (ex., report or publication) that adds value to existing global health equity work. For more information about what co-produced knowledge is, have a look at these videos
We offer a range of services for the research, program activities, and proposal development of UB faculty (see samples below). Fees associated with these services vary based on complexity and duration of the project, and will be calculated after the party requesting them meets with CGHE leadership to discuss specific needs, timeframe, and other variables.
Training for faculty, staff, and students
Preparing for culturally-informed international travel; practicing cultural humility; framing research as the coproduction of knowledge.
Orienting and preparing faculty, staff, and students for community engagement; recruiting community partners; spearheading partnership development; planning, organizing, convening, and facilitating meetings.
Developing project milestones; monitoring and updating Gantt or PERT charts; coordinating project update meetings, including working with multiple calendars, arranging for space, and meeting facilitation; and other services determined by request.
Communications to promote events, projects, and articles
Proposing, writing, and publishing communication materials to promote articles or events; developing news articles; providing social media “push” on FB, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn; preparing press kit bios, press releases, fact sheets, digital art, and contact sheet.
If you or your team would benefit from these services, please contact us at email@example.com to set up a meeting to discuss your proposal.
Are you developing global health or refugee health proposals that require demonstration of further impact?
The Community for Global Health Equity (CGHE), supports faculty research that promotes the health and well-being of under-resourced populations by helping reduce the sources and effects of inequity.
The Community for Global Health Equity Graduate Assistants (GA) are available to support faculty research. This support is limited and dependent on our GA availability as well as match between faculty needs and our GA skills, duration and percent effort required, and potential for advancing collaborative scholarship by the faculty member. Should you need one of our student's support on a project, please fill out the application below.
