Funding Opportunities

Are you currently working on efforts to improve the health of those from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds?

The Center for Health Equity (CHE) in the Graduate School of Public Health (Pitt Public Health) offers several funding opportunities for those working to address health disparities and health inequity. Projects of interest include those focused on improving the health of those who face social or economic obstacles to health due to their race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, gender, mental health, cognitive, sensory, or physical disability, sexual orientation, geography, or other characteristics linked to discrimination or health inequity.
