CERC Mini-Grant Awards

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. The long term goals of the research partnerships supported by mini-grants should be one or more of the following: to improve community health outcomes, increase access to health and health-related services, enhance quality and effectiveness of health interventions, and/or inform future health policy.
