Ohio University Global Health Initiative Research and Scholarly Award


The primary purpose of the Ohio University Global Health Research and Scholarly Award (GHIRSA) is to stimulate individual and collaborative international research and scholarship. Each year, seed money of up to $20,000 will be granted for one or more new interdisciplinary research projects led by one or more Group I CHSP or HCOM addressing international health research questions. Faculty members from different programs within a given school or department–or different disciplines across schools/departments-are encouraged to apply collaboratively on a proposal if the ability to solve the targeted research problems would be enhanced through interdisciplinary collaboration. Funds are available for one year, with expectation that they will be expended within 12 calendar months. A final report will be due at the completion of one year. These funds are not intended as long-term support of ongoing projects, but rather to increase competitiveness for funding from external agencies.
