Grant Information

The Community for Global Health Equity (CGHE) seeks to foster novel scholarship that harnesses the power of transdisciplinary collaboration to address the complex sets of barriers to achieving global health equity. The goal is to support the entities who most influence global health—to assist the leaders, organizations, policy makers and practitioners who can reduce or eliminate barriers to improved health and well-being.

Through the generous support of the leadership at the University at Buffalo, funding support is available to foster the work of transdisciplinary teams in advancing global health equity in a variety of topics. These funds are intended to initiate, develop and enhance collaborations among UB faculty, and with external partners. The opportunity described below is separate from theme-specific efforts of CGHE to advance transdisciplinary scholarship in food equity and air pollution.

Proposals must:

• have a clearly articulated global health equity challenge and the opportunity for UB faculty to make a unique contribution to understanding and/or addressing the challenge

• identify entities or populations that will benefit from the project

Applicants are encouraged to seek financial or in-kind support from their departments or other sources, and describe this support in the application.
