IIMS Community Engagement Small Project Grants

The purpose of the Community Engagement Small Project Grants (CESPG) program is to support community and research collaborations from South Texas with grants of up to $5,000 so that they may develop activities that lead to the translation of research for public health benefit.  The CESPG are available to newly-developed or current community-academic partnerships with projects focused on:  (1) research/assessment, (2) education/training, and/or (3) dissemination or communication of research results, program features, or policy implications.  Proposal topics are unrestricted; however, those involving health care practice-based research networks, health outcomes, epidemiology, and public health are encouraged. 

We are now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 IIMS CESPGs.  View the funding announcement  here.  Applications are due on December 11th. Click here to apply. See supporting documents below.
