Faculty Awards (Open application process all year to address policy needs as they arise)
- $2,000 to $5,000 grants are available to support faculty projects in U.S. public health policy (e.g., policy development or policy analysis for policy makers or outside partners).
Student Awards (Applications due Nov. 27th, 2013) Up to five grants for student public health policy projects will be awarded as follows:
- Up to $1,000 for masters level projects in public health policy (e.g., Capstone or other special studies projects); and

These policy grants aim to promote innovative, interdisciplinary projects that will advance public health policy via engagement in the policy process, dissemination, field research or public health practice.
