Stanford Cancer Institute

Community Partnership Seed Grants

The goal of this program is to foster cancer prevention and control efforts that are community driven by partnering Stanford researchers, physicians, trainees and/or staff with community partners to jointly develop projects focused on addressing the cancer burden of medically underserved populations, including those in rural areas or racial/ethnic minorities in the SCI catchment area.  Projects form new or strengthen existing partnerships and implement and evaluate new ideas or interventions.  Developed in partnership with the SCI Community Advisory Board (CAB), the new program included a competitive application process and review by a committee of Stanford faculty and SCI CAB members.
