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 2022 Global Health Seed Grants have been awarded to five Rutgers faculty members who are confronting disparities related to postpartum mental health, diseases of poverty, child feeding in farming communities, racial stigma in hospital care, and intimate partner violence.

Global Health Seed Grants are awarded annually in collaboration with Rutgers Global. 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, New Jersey, as well as BrazilIndonesiaKenya, Nepal, and Uganda, among other locations. Brief descriptions of all projects funded by previous Global Health Seed Grants are available at these links:
