The Graduate Programs in Public Health (GPPH) has a new mini-grant program!

We are pleased to announce the availability of funds to support research activities among primary and adjunct faculty, staff, and public health students. We have secured funds with this new public health mini-grant to assist students and faculty in attending conferences and conducting research.

There are two types of funding available:

  1. To defray the costs of conference attendance*
    • (Maximum award amount = $1000)
    • *Preference is given to those with a poster or oral presentations
  2. To employ current UNE Master of Public Health (MPH) students as graduate research assistants or to cover data analysis costs.
    • (Maximum award amount = $2500)

In order to be eligible to apply for the mini-grant program:

  • All applicants must be a current GPPH student or faculty in good standing.
  • Projects and conferences must be clearly related to public health.
  • All presentations and publications must reference or acknowledge UNE and GPPH.

A committee of experienced researchers who are primary and adjunct faculty of the College will conduct the review of the applications. The mini-grant program administrator, GPPH’s Research and Service Coordinator, leads this committee. Recommendations for funding will be made to the Research and Service Coordinator who will finalize the award decisions. The greatest number of highly ranked applications will be funded within the available budget.
