Student Global Health Interprofessional Grants
Student Grant Opportunities for Winter and Spring 2015 - Deadline September 15, 2014
Interprofessional Care Teams in Salvador, Brazil: a Transferable Model of Care
A study of the Brazilian model for mitigating the HIV epidemic in an interprofessional setting and its applicability in community-based programs in Baltimore City.
Palestine, Israel and Jordan: Cross-Border Greywater Feasibility Project
Examination of the feasibility of using greywater in lieu of scarce potable water for small-scale crop production by analyzing complex public health and environmental issues in collaboration with a local academic institution and other in-region partners. The project also includes looking at solutions for addressing negative health and economic impacts of extended drought, expected to get worse in coming years.
2015 Student Grant Parameters
Students apply to participate in a range of faculty–led projects. Fundable projects must include at least two students representing two different UMB schools and at least one UMB faculty member.
Following the project experience, under direction of the responsible faculty member, students must:
- Write a significant paper related to the project outcomes.
- Write a significant reflection essay or photojournalistic project (parameters to be determined); and
- Prepare and deliver at least one on-campus presentation.
- Record a reflective interview on the project results, and include photos, videos if or as appropriate.
Whether a student receives academic credit for the experience will be determined by the student’s individual school. Students should have any credit requirements determined and signed for before beginning project.
The grant covers reasonable cost of transportation (round-trip coach airfare from Baltimore to the host country) and recommended immunizations. Additional expenses such as accommodations, travel in-country, meals and incidentals are the responsibility of the student. Airline cancellation or change fees for discretionary reasons after the ticket is purchased are also the responsibility of the student.
Grant Review Criteria
Each application will be reviewed for meeting the grant parameters stated above. For applications fully meeting the parameters, the review committee will look toward an award pool that represents the rich professional diversity of the University. The number of grants awarded is dependent on size of grant requests against resources available.
