The Population Health Initiative seeks to create a world where all people can live healthier and more fulfilling lives. In support of that vision, the initiative is pleased to offer population health pilot research grants of up to $50,000 each. Application for the next round of funding are due on January 29, 2021.

These grants are intended to encourage the development of new interdisciplinary collaborations among investigators for projects that address critical challenges to population health.

The initiative will fund a not yet determined number of awards in the 2021 round of applications. Two awards will be offered in collaboration with the following internal UW partners:

  • EarthLab—One award will be reserved for a project that specifically seeks address the disproportionate impact of climate change on health in vulnerable communities. EarthLab works in partnership with others to co-produce and catalyze actionable science, so preference for this award will be given to interdisciplinary research teams that includes partners from communities that the work seeks to impact.
  • Office of Global Affairs—One award will be reserved specifically for an internationally-focused project through our partnership with the UW Office of Global Affairs.

The performance period for these pilot grants is one calendar year.
