Last Week to Apply for FIU Community Research Grants
FIU's Research Center in Minority Institutions (RCMI) is pleased to announce the availability of seed funding for community partners and FIU faculty investigators to establish community-university collaborations. This seed funding is designed to establish long-term relationships with community-based organizations in order to address their health-related concerns and to promote participation in research. Through this funding, the FIU-RCMI hopes to establish community-university collaborations that benefit South Florida communities and enhance direct community-involvement among FIU faculty conducting health disparities research. FIU-RCMI will provide five awards annually, up to $5,000 per award.

To be successful, these community-university collaborations require resources; for example, time and funds for professional development, conference travel, supplies, meeting support, and other research-related expenses. This funding opportunity supports partnership-building activities, exploring shared research interests, and/or developing infrastructure and governance (improving data collection processes, system interfaces, etc.). Projects must focus on activities that enhance the community partner’s capacity to conduct health disparities research in South Florida and can include (but are not limited to): Needs assessments, secondary analysis of de-identified data (non-human subjects research), planning, evaluation or dissemination of community-level programs, service or system improvement planning, and training of community partners to enhance research capacity.  Application will be accepted until 5 p.m. on December 9th.
