Are you developing a community-academic research partnership or project? Attend a free workshop on Jan. 8, 2018 to learn about funding opportunities that support community-engaged partnerships and collaborative research approaches.

Both funding opportunities are provided by the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research. They include:

  • Community-University Partnership Seed (CUPS): Up to $5,000 for partnership development activities (applications accepted on a rolling basis)
  • Translational Science Award: Up to $50,000 for small-scale, pilot research studies that may use collaborative or community-based participatory research approaches (application details for the next funding cycle will be announced in January)

During the workshop, participants can ask questions about specific projects and partnerships and hear tips and stories of success from prior awardees. Participants will also receive tips for writing a strong grant application. 

This free workshop is open to community partners and academic researchers both within and outside of U-M. The event takes places from 9:30 a.m. – noon on Monday, Jan. 8 at the North Campus Research Complex. Breakfast will be provided. Register and learn more by clicking here.
