Global Health Seed Grants

Stanford Global Health supports innovative research projects by awarding seed grants each year to multidisciplinary teams who are dedicating to solving global health problems in low-resource settings.

Program Overview

Stanford’s Global Health Seed Grant program encourages the development of innovative solutions to global health challenges. With early-stage funding, we support scientific and clinical research as well as innovations in health care implementation or delivery. The program seeks to build Stanford’s vibrant global health community and its outreach to international partners, as with the program pictured above, with Clea Sarnquist, in the Department of Pediatrics, and Michael Baiocchi, in the Department of Medicine: Mental health issues and violence among adolescents in the Nairobi slums: Can empowerment programs prevent or mitigate both?
