Global Child Health Equity Seed Grant

DEADLINE: Wednesday, October 31, 2018

The Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI), the Global Child Health program, and the Stanford Center for Innovation in Global Health -- is pleased to announce the Global Child Health Equity (GCHE) Seed Grant program. The program aims to support two global health seed grants of up to $25,000 each for projects seeking solutions to improve the health of pregnant women and children in low-resource settings. GCHE Seed Grant applications are expected to focus primarily on the health of pregnant women and children in low- to lower-middle-income countries.

We are particularly interested in forging partnerships that can position the partners to apply to new funding to build on their seed grant-funded research. The principal investigator must be affiliated with Stanford University as their primary institution.

If you have any questions, please contact S. Jill Mueller.
