Global Health Equity Micro-grants

Faculty working at the Food Equity Ideas Lab.

UB Faculty participating in the Food Equity Ideas Lab

Apply for a Global Health Equity Micro-grant


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.

Allowable Use of Funds

CGHE micro-grants traditionally enable work that lifts global health equity projects from one level of accomplishment to another. For example, previous CGHE micro-grants have supported costs toward graduate student assistant work on literature reviews, the development of research frameworks, processing and analysis of data, and interpretation and translation of services. Micro-grants do not support publication fees, conference fees, or any travel at this time.

Funding Limits

Up to $1,000 per project.
