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

  • 2/12/21
    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.
  • 2/16/21
    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
