Funding Opportunity Overview
The Great Plains Tribal Epidemiology Center (GPTEC) is a core component of the Great Plains Tribal Chairmen’s Health Board (GPTCHB) that provides and builds capacity within a wide variety of epidemiological and technical assistance services. GPTEC’s mission is to provide leadership, technical assistance, support, and advocacy for the 18 tribal nations, 1 service unit, and communities serviced by the Great Plains Area Indian Health Service in order to eliminate the disparities in health that currently exist for tribal peoples within the same four-state region.
GPTEC is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity to award tribal student mini research grants that contribute to the Public Health educational development of American Indian/Alaskan Native college level students. Funding is provided by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD). The purpose of the mini research grants is to provide opportunities, support, and guidance to tribal students interested in pursuing careers related to improving health/reducing disparities among the tribal communities of the Great Plains service area.
Research projects funded under this opportunity will be expected to be public health related and take place within a tribal community located within the GPTEC Great Plains service area. Research projects should lead to a better understanding of how to address health disparities in the Great Plains area tribal communities.
