The Steinberg Fund for Interdisciplinary Global Health Research is back!
The goal of the Steinberg Fund for Interdisciplinary Global Health Research is to catalyze innovative and impactful global health research at McGill & affiliated hospitals, by providing seed grants that can help launch new, interdisciplinary global health research projects and make them competitive for sustained external funding.
Areas of focus for the program are purposely forward thinking and aim to address global health issues that are emerging and will increase in importance over the coming decade. In some areas McGill already is a leader and in others GHP is pushing researchers to think about how they can contribute to building strength through research partnerships.
Seed grants for Wave 3 will be $50,000. Grants are non-renewable. Duration of the seed grant projects should be between 12 and 18 months. Five grants are expected to be funded this round.
The Wave 3 (2019) call is open to all global health topics and ideas that are not mentioned in the "Ineligible projects" section below. In partnership with the McGill Interdisciplinary Initiative in Infection and Immunity (MI4) we are offering two co-funded grants for projects related to infectious diseases. The other three grants are open to all topics. In general, we are looking for strong research proposals with innovative ideas to address pressing global health needs and challenges.
*PI or co-PIs of active Steinberg Fund projects, fundamental (bench laboratory) research, research that is already funded, gap funding are ineligible for this opportunity.
