To all NYU faculty, doctoral students and post-docs:
The Global Public Health Research Challenge Fund (GPHRCF) supports faculty-initiated research on a competitive basis and is administered by the Executive Vice President for Health and a GPHRCF Selection Committee. Awards in 2013 - 2014 will be made in a single round of competition.
Up to five awards of up to $15,000 each will be granted for the 2013-2014 academic year. Requests for funding should in no case exceed $15,000. Awards will not be granted to fund faculty salaries, but should be used to cover out-of-pocket project expenses such as student support, travel, software, data base acquisition, equipment, etc.
The purpose of the GPHRCF is:
Proposals are encouraged from individuals or groups in any academic discipline represented at the University. Projects must demonstrate a global public health focus, which includes projects involving global public health issues that express themselves in U.S.-based populations. Proposals for collaborative, interdepartmental, and/or inter-school research are particularly encouraged. Awards are open to all full-time NYU junior faculty, doctoral students and post-docs but one criterion for review will include the extent to which the project enriches the NYU Global Institute of Public Health programs, faculty, and student body.
