Apply for Meharry-Vanderbilt CERC mini-grants through Oct. 29

The Meharry-Vanderbilt Community Engaged Research Core announces a new round of mini-grants. The deadline to apply is Friday, Oct. 29.


The Meharry-Vanderbilt Community Engaged Research Core invites proposals for activities that promote ongoing, mutually beneficial, health-oriented research partnerships between community organizations and academic researchers. Both academic and community partners are expected to contribute to the development of the proposal.


Applicants may propose a community-engaged research project or a capacity building project that enables the partners to pursue an identified research agenda. The long-term goals of the research partnerships supported by mini-grants should be one or more of the following: to improve community health outcomes, increase access to health and health-related services, enhance quality and effectiveness of health interventions, and/or inform future health policy.


Two grant awards are available:




  • Partnership Development Grants: Up to $2,500 to support the development and strengthening of new community-academic partnerships.


  • Community-Engaged Research Grants: Up to $10,000 to enable community-academic research partnerships to undertake pilot research activities.


All applicants must:



  1. Have both a community and academic partner to apply.

  2. Submit an email of intent to Lexie.Lipham@vumc.org by Friday, Oct. 22. This should list both the community and academic partner applying, which grant you are applying for, and a brief synopsis of your project.
