Global Learning for Health Equity Network Planning Grant – Feb 8

Global Learning for Health Equity Network invites proposals for planning grants

Created in 2020 with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Global Learning for Health Equity Network (GL4HE) at the University of Maryland, Baltimore seeks to build a framework that will support the adaptation of health equity interventions from overseas to United States settings with a strong focus on community engagement and bidirectional learning.

GL4HE has issued a call for proposals for planning grants to help community-based organizations and health equity advocates learn about creative approaches, initiatives, or policies from countries around the world that can inform their efforts to advance health equity in the U.S.

This call for proposals is designed to support six to eight recipients with grants of between $30,000 and $50,000 at any stage of their global learning journey—whether they have already identified a global idea they would like to learn from or are just curious to explore what solutions exist beyond U.S. borders. This opportunity will provide grantees with mentorship, resources and funding to bring global inspiration to their communities.

This call is designed to support global learners at any of the stages represented in the model to help progress the learners forward in their global learning journey and to set them up for future funding. The goal of this seed funding program is to support community-based organizations, health equity advocates, academic institutions, or public health departments in applying the framework to their work. The grant will also equip grantees with mentorship and resources to seek further funding for their global learning idea.

Community based organizations, public health departments, academic programs, and other groups are eligible to apply.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the University of Maryland, Baltimore website.

Deadline: February 8, 2023
