2015 Faculty Grant Parameters
Faculty apply for grant funds 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.
Details of the Grant Parameters and Funding are:
- Faculty will be asked to complete a survey prior to leaving and upon return that measures certain aspects of interprofessional teaching and learning.
- Funding details:
- Faculty grants (up to a maximum of $10,000) can be used to fund any expense directly related to the project including graduate student assistance, travel to and from project site, visa, lodgings, travel immunizations, per diem, translators and post-project conference expenses. A more detailed description of how the funds can be used is available online.
- The funding cannot be used for salary support. Faculty must include a budget with the project proposal.
- There is no particular model for the budget, please refer to previously funded projects for assistance.
- The grant award will be transferred to the faculty member’s new or existing academic development account and managed by the individual schools’ business manager. See online for more details.
- At the end of the grant term, faculty will be asked for an accounting of the funds.
- A faculty member is only eligible to receive a grant award one time except in exceptional circumstances (as determined by CGEI) in which a faculty member seeks funding for a distinct project or a critical follow-up to a successful prior project.
- CGEI does not have the staff or resources to assist with project follow-up such as helping identify or apply for additional funding or helping develop the project or initiative with UMB faculty or administrators or outside organizations.
