Global Health Project Awards


The Institute for Global Health is pleased to share this call for applications to supporting member faculty projects, including, but not limited to, events, education, community engagement, or implementation projects. These funds are not intended to support research projects. Those interested in research awards should apply for Research Catalyzer Funding for Faculty.

The Global Health Project Awards are supported by the Feinberg School of Medicine’s Global Health Initiative, which is generously supported by Northwestern Medicine Primary & Specialty Care, its patients, and Feinberg’s donors.

Eligibility: The purpose of this grant is to provide support to Northwestern faculty for non-research projects. The fund is not meant to support the same aims of existing projects already funded elsewhere. Priority will be given to supporting long-term partnerships for projects that will have long-term outcomes and impact. Faculty must have a full-time appointment at Northwestern University and be a member of the Institute for Global Health for at least the past six months.

Budget: Total budget cannot exceed $25,000 regardless of length of budget period, including all subcontractor costs and indirect expenses to subcontractors. F&A to Northwestern is not allowable. Requests may be made for less than $25,000.

Budget Period: 1-2 years

Required Progress Report: A final report will be due to the Director of the Institute for Global Health 60 days after the end of the event or project.
