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 NYU Global Institute of Public Health and a GPHRCF Selection Committee. Awards in 2014 - 2015 will be made in a single round of competition.
Up to five awards of up to $15,000 each will be granted for the 2014-2015 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.
For additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of the GPHRCF Selection Committee we look forward to receiving your proposals and supporting your work in the field of global public health.
