ECHO/PROJECT EXPORT PILOT RESEARCH PROJECTS IN RACIAL/ETHNIC HEALTH DISPARITIES
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Program on Ethnicity, Culture, and Health Outcomes (ECHO) in collaboration with the Carolina-Shaw Partnership to Eliminate Health Disparities (Project EXPORT), is pleased to announce a call for pilot grant proposals on issues related to racial or ethnic health disparities. The purpose of this call for proposals is to encourage small-scale pilot research projects that can be completed within 12 -18 months and have the potential to lead to a larger federally or foundation funded award application. We are interested in a broad variety of issues including, for example, innovative survey methods with minorities and underserved populations. We strongly encourage collaborative projects between faculty at UNC Chapel Hill and at a Historically Black College or University (HBCU).
Carolina Population Center Fellowships
Pre and post-doc fellowships
Training programs at the Cecil G. Sheps Center
Includes: National Research Service Award (NRSA) Pre-Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Training Program in Health Services Research
Welcomes applications from physicians, dentists, and other post-doctoral trainees as well as pre-doctoral students already admitted to degree candidacy in the NC-CH departments of Health Policy and Management, Epidemiology, Maternal and Child Health, Health Behavior, Biostatistics, Sociology, Geography, Economics, Anthropology, or Political Science. The emphasis of the training program is the organization, financing, utilization, quality and evaluation of personal health care services and public policies for ensuring access to such services.
Active Living Research Dissertation Awards
Dissertation awards are a priority for Active Living Research because they both help build the evidence base and increase the number of investigators in this new field of study. Doctoral candidates in any field or discipline may request up to $25,000 total for up to two years as support for their doctoral dissertations. Projects must have clear relevance to the overall mission of Active Living Research, and preference will be given to proposals that are relevant to preventing childhood obesity. However, projects do not have to address the specific topics in the Active Living Research call for proposals.
Epidemiology Student Funding
A social epidemiology approach can be applied to all health outcomes. Therefore, the various training grants in the department are also a potential source of funding for students. Those grants are listed on the Student Central web pages.
