Global Health Seed Grants
Rutgers Global Health Institute awards Global Health Seed Grants to faculty conducting collaborative, interdisciplinary activities that address health inequities in New Jersey and around the world. Our aim is to help faculty pursue new ideas and seed expanded research and funding. Grants are awarded in one of two categories: 1) Education, Training, and Capacity Building or 2) Research.
Congratulations to This Year's Recipients
The 2023 Global Health Seed Grants have been awarded to Rutgers faculty who are addressing disparities related to adolescent pregnancy and sexual health information, immigrant health care access, tuberculosis disease prevention, health communication training, and dementia among indigenous older adults.
Because global health places a priority on health equity, rather than on geographic location, the Global Health Seed Grants program is designed to address health disparities anywhere in the world, including Rutgers’ surrounding communities.
Past seed grant awards have supported efforts in New Brunswick and Newark, New Jersey, as well as in Brazil, Indonesia, Kenya, Nepal, and Uganda, among other locations. Brief descriptions of all projects funded by Global Health Seed Grants are available at these links:
Global Health Seed Grants are awarded annually in collaboration with Rutgers Global. A call for proposals occurs in the fall of each year. Subscribe to Global Health Connection to receive updates about the Global Health Seed Grants program.
