Child Health Equity Program

Applications for this funding program are currently OPEN.

The Duke Children’s Health and Discovery Initiative and the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute is pleased to announce a request for applications for the Child Health Equity Program. The goal of this program is to support investigators and community organizations who are conducting research to advance child health equity. For the purposes of this program, we define promoting health equity as efforts to reduce and/or eliminate health disparities and the determinants that adversely affect or exclude marginalized groups from opportunities for positive health.  The funds supplied by this award are intended to support research projects that have strong potential to inform or develop testable interventions to address child health disparities. Please note that at least one PI must have a primary appointment in a clinical department within the Duke School of Medicine or Duke School of Nursing. We plan to award 1-3 grants of up to $300,000 each in funding to carry out their proposed project over 24 months.

Optional Letters of Interest (LOI) must be submitted via email to childrensdiscovery@dm.duke.edu by December 15, 2021.

Full Application Deadline: March 24, 2022
