Faculty Global Health Interprofessional Grants
Collaboration among professions and among schools is the focus of the global health interprofessional grant program.
- UMB faculty may apply for grant funds up to $5,000 to develop and lead interprofessional global health student projects. The project must be interprofessional and include at least two participating students representing at least two different UMB schools.
- The number of grants awarded depends on the size of grant requests and resources available. Top priority is given to applicants who already have a project initiated or funded for which the global health grant is an add-on.
- Grant funding must be used within 12 months of the award date and only for the purposes outlined in the proposal. At the end of the grant term, faculty will submit financial and program reports.
- With rare exceptions, a faculty member may receive only one award under this program.
PART 1: Project title, lead faculty and number of students
- Title of the proposed project
- Provide information for the lead faculty member (if there is more than one, please list the primary person responsible for communicating with our Center)
- Indicate the number of students that you are requesting to participate in your project and any preferred disciplines
PART 2: Upload a project description that includes the following:
- Specify all UMB faculty members involved in the project (name, title, department, email address) and their roles, as well as the main collaborators (name, title, organization, email address, phone number) in the project country.
- A detailed description (goals, methods, and expected outcomes) of your proposed project including how you will incorporate students from your school and at least one other school on the UMB campus (1,000 words or less)
- Estimated dates and length of the project in the proposed country? List proposed in-country activities.
- If not set forth in the description, how does this project fit in with your academic agenda?
- 5. What pre-departure activities will students be engaged in to help prepare them for the project (please provide specific content of sessions and an approximate time frame for these activities)? Note: The Center will have team building and cross-cultural orientation materials available for participating faculty and students.
- Please check UMB's International SOS page and describe how you and your collaborating partners will address any medical or travel concerns that are listed for the proposed project country to ensure, to the best of the project's ability, the safety and security of students.
- What contact will you have with participating students following the project to ensure they complete their post-project requirements?
- What is the interprofessional component of this experience?
- Are you receiving any other grants for this experience? If so, please describe the grant and level of support.
PART 3: Budget
Please submit a budget that may include faculty transportation, room and board, preparation (can include cost of graduate student preparation assistance) and other costs relating to the project. The total budget should not exceed $5,000 per project. As noted, students participating in this project will be funded separately, but please indicate when student costs can be covered (e.g. in the past, housing costs have been covered at the research site).
