The University of Wisconsin-Madison Global Health Institute (GHI) is pleased to announce the application period is open for its 2022 grants and awards program. This competitive program is designed to support global health efforts of faculty, staff, clinicians and graduate students across campus, fostering a spirit of collaboration with colleagues and communities, locally and globally.

Applications for all grants and awards are due January 24, 2022.

There is no requirement this year for Seed Grant applicants to submit a letter of intent.

This year, the awards to host visiting scholars will be for either Visiting Scholars or Virtual Visiting Scholars. GHI will again offer Faculty and Staff Travel Awards this year.

GHI’s popular Seed Grants are the largest awards, at up to $20,000 each. The grants, available to investigators and clinicians from across campus, support efforts to launch new global health research projects and make them competitive for sustained external funding. The 2021 Seed Grants supported a range of projects on topics including combatting antimicrobial resistance; health, clmate and agriculture, and traditional health knowledge and COVID-19. The grants have gone to health clinicians, biochemists, engineers, women’s health advocates and more.
