CERC Mini-Grant Awards                          

Next submission date March 2, 2018

The Meharry-Vanderbilt Community Engaged Research Core invites proposals for activities that promote on-going, mutually beneficial, health-oriented research partnerships between community organizations and academic researchers. Both academic and community partners are expected to contribute to the development of the proposal. Applicants may propose a community-engaged research project or a capacity building project that enable the partners to pursue an identified research agenda.
