Section for Global Health Grant Program

The Section for Global Health at NYU Langone is seeking pilot grant proposals that support research into developing, evaluating, and expanding strategies to prevent and treat illness and enhance wellbeing in low-resource settings.

Applicants are encouraged to align their pilot project proposals with one or more of our six focal areas:

  • connection: network analysis, systems analysis
  • location: spatial analytics, vectors/zoonoses
  • resilience: resilience analytics, asset-based interventions
  • creation: design and design thinking, global engineering
  • delivery: implementation research, delivery science
  • structure: policy, social determinants of health, planetary health, ethics

Applicants must demonstrate the potential for future National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other competitive extramural funding based on their pilot project.


We anticipate funding three awards of $10,000 each, for a duration of one year.

Grants funds should be applied toward research-related costs. We anticipate and support funding of research costs (including in countries other than the United States) for the following expenditures:

  • salary for support personnel, such as an analyst or research assistant (salary support for the principal investigator, or PI, is not provided)
  • supplies and other costs related to research such as travel

Indirect costs will not be provided. Funds for equipment purchase are generally excluded except through significant justification.

How to Apply

Eligible applicants include junior faculty at the assistant professor level, fellows, residents, and postdocs employed at NYU Langone. All applicants must submit an application by March 1, 2021, at 5:00PM eastern time (ET).

Applications consist of the following components:

  • the PI’s NIH-style biographical sketch—maximum five pages
  • a list of all co-investigators, including full name, degree, institution, and department
  • a research grant proposal, maximum three pages, which should include sections describing background and project significance, innovation, and research design and strategy
  • a budget (see details above), including budget justification
  • references

Proposal documents should be formatted according to the NIH format attachment guidelines particularly the recommended fonts (Arial, etc.) and sizing (11 points or larger), single spaced, and margins (at least one-half inch).

Proposal Review

We evaluate proposals based on the quality of the proposed scientific investigation, the significance of the proposed research, innovation, the potential of the proposal to lead to future successful extramural grant applications, and the quality and promise of the applicant.

You will be notified of your selection for funding on or before April 1, 2021. Projects begin on June 1, 2021.
