Urban Health Institute begins Small Grants Program

The Urban Health Institute last week announced its Small Grants Program, which is designed to advance research and programming that relate to the health and well-being of the residents of Baltimore and draw implications for urban health both nationally and globally.

The grants will be given in three categories: student-community projects, faculty-community research and course developments. In each of these categories, partnership with a community agency or, in the case of course development, a community leader, will be essential.

More information on the Small Grants program, and an application, is available on the Urban Health Institute Web site at The application deadline is 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 11.

A meeting for interested students will be held at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 19, at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, room E6519.
