The Stanford Global Health Seed Grant program catalyzes the development of innovative solutions to global health and planetary health challenges. It supports scientific and clinical research, implementation science, and development of new innovations in health care implementation or delivery. The program seeks to expand Stanford’s vibrant global health community, support global health training opportunities for Stanford trainees and students, and strengthen capacity with international partners. Research projects that have strong potential to generate solutions and impact, and/or scale-up into larger initiatives are encouraged to apply.
