Community-Based Health Disparities Research Mentoring Fellowship

The CEPP Community-Based Health Disparities Research Mentoring Fellowship provides two fellowship opportunities for UB faculty members or teams to advance their community-based research in the area of health disparities.   

Fellowship Goals and Purpose

The goal of this program is to support the career development and progression of health disparities researchers through the development of interdisciplinary mentoring teams and the utilization of a committed coach to help navigate new partnerships and provide intermediary guidance.

All research and scholarship supported by CEPP fellowships advance community-based research and scholarship that address issues of social justice, equity, and public policy. Such research requires collaboration with a non-academic partner and will confront issues that may range from local to global.

There are two mentoring fellowships available and they are supported by the National Research Mentoring Network (National Institutes of Health, National Institute of General Medical Sciences [NIGMS] Award Number U54 GM119023), and will allow fellows to participate in a larger national initiative. Proposals are invited from UB full-time faculty members or teams for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years.  

There is a multi-stage application process.  The application deadline for Letters of Intent is 12 noon, Friday, January 8, 2016.  Guidelines and application information are available here.

All fellowship questions and applications should be forwarded to: Laura Mangan, Coordinator, Civic Engagement and Public Policy, at
