Stanford’s Center for Innovation in Global Health is proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for our Global Health Seed Grant program!


The Global Health Seed Grant program encourages the development of innovative solutions to global health challenges. With early-stage funding, this program supports operational, scientific and clinical research as well as innovations in health care implementation or delivery. The Center for Innovation in Global Health believes that local is global; we are committed to improving health equity among all underserved or marginalized groups.  We welcome applications from research teams that will conduct research related to improving health equity in the United States, and elsewhere. Interdisciplinary research teams are strongly encouraged to apply, especially those working in the priority areas below (though all applications focused in all global health areas will be considered):

  • Address health implications of climate change or other forms or anthropogenic environmental degradation
  • Investigate global respiratory and allergy-related diseases
  • Seek solutions to improve the health of pregnant women and children in low-resource settings
  • Support innovative research in emergency medicine in low-resource settings
  • Seek to improve health systems and expand access to health services in low-income settings
