The Duke Global Health Institute offers grant opportunities to encourage intellectual engagement, and domestic and international research and service.
International Travel Grant - Request for Proposals
The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) is pleased to offer international travel awards of up to $5000 each to Duke faculty to pursue global health research opportunities in low- or middle-income countries (see World Bank list). These awards are aimed at faculty looking to explore new research collaborations by visiting an international site. Applications will be reviewed on a biannual schedule, and should include a brief description of proposed activities (no more than 3 pages), budget, and applicant’s CV or NIH biosketch.
Deadline: March 16, 2020 @ 5:00pm | Contact: Kelly Deal, Assistant Director
Pilot Research - Request for Proposals
The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) invites interdisciplinary teams led by DGHI faculty to submit research proposals in the area of data science, machine learning, and/or artificial intelligence. “AI” is typically used to describe when computers are learning independent of human interaction- for example the ability to perform tasks in complex environments without constant guidance by a user or the ability to improve performance by learning from experience. The field of AI includes or overlaps with machine learning, data science, and digital health. Through this RFP, DGHI seeks to provide pilot funds to stimulate interdisciplinary research collaborations, with the larger goal of enabling investigators to leverage preliminary findings and data to obtain larger awards of external funding.
