Request for Proposals


2022 Community Impact Research Grants Information Session & Request for Proposals

In recent years, the incidence and mortality for most types of cancer in California have declined; however, disparities persist for historically marginalized communities. The Stanford Cancer Institute Population Sciences Program and Community Outreach and Engagement and the Center for Population Health Sciences are pleased to offer a call for cancer health equity proposals on two tracks: Community-Driven Cancer Equity Grand Challenge & Cancer Health Equity Seed Grants. All Stanford faculty and early career trainees (e.g., postdoctoral fellows) are eligible to apply. Proposals are due October 14, 2022.

  • Track 1: Community-Driven Cancer Equity Grand Challenge. Track 1 is in direct response to a community-driven grand challenge. This year, we are partnering with the San Joaquin Valley Public Health Consortium, comprising eight public health departments dedicated to advancing health equity, to understand and address the impact of wildfire smoke on underserved communities in the San Joaquin Valley region (funding period 2 years, up to $100,000).
  • Track 2: Cancer Health Equity Seed Grants. We invite the submission of seed grant proposals to address and reduce cancer disparities among underserved populations in California (funding period 1 year, up to $40,000). 

Register for the Information Session on August 31, 2022 11:00 am-12:00 pm to learn more.
