Available Funds

  • Small grants of $2,500 to $10,000 to address community health issues through university-community partnerships. Up to three awards are expected, subject to the number and quality of applications. An additional $2000 may be provided for use of CTSC Core services.

CWRU School of Medicine makes funds available for grants available to address urban health issues through University-Community partnerships. Proposals should translate research finding to improve health conditions that exist or are exacerbated through residence in a local distressed area; and/or should improve community health while increasing the preparedness of health professionals to address urban health.


To receive funding, applications must reflect a partnership between a community organization and a Case Western Reserve University faculty member. Partnerships are intended to leverage the expertise of members of the community in improving health and promoting wellness. Applications are encouraged from CWRU-SOM students and faculty, and from faculty at other Case schools and colleges and affiliates. However, student applications should be submitted by a faculty member who is active in the CTSC. For all applications, the Principal Investigator must be a Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine faculty member. Interested investigators from other institutions should partner with a School of Medicine faculty member for the submission.
