UWPRC Small Grant Funding

2023-2024 UWPRC Small Grant Competition 

Applications for the UWPRC Small Grant Competition are currently closed. Please check back at a later date for information regarding the next funding cycle. 

The UW-Madison Prevention Research Center (UWPRC) offers funding through the annual Small Grant Competition to support research promoting maternal and child health and health equity. Grants are intended to support small-scale and innovative research projects, especially those that will provide preliminary data leading to larger research efforts in population health and wellbeing, health equity, or disease prevention for women, children, and families.

Proposed projects must align with the UWPRC’s focus on maternal and child health. Proposals should also work to advance health equity, address the social determinants of health (such as transportation, housing, poverty, food insecurity, etc.), and serve to improve the health of different communities across the state of Wisconsin. Of special interest are proposals that address priority areas identified by the UWPRC Community Advisory Board.

If you have any questions or would like to request Technical Assistance, please email the UWPRC team at prc@wisc.edu.
