The Duke Global Health Institute offers grant opportunities to encourage intellectual engagement, and domestic and international research and service.
Duke Global Cancer - Request for Proposals
Duke Global Health Institute and Cancer Institute will provide up to $25,000 direct costs for one year of support for each pilot research project that address issues relating to cancer prevention, diagnosis, or treatment in resource constrained environments. Two pilot projects will be funded. Specific emphasis will be given for interdisciplinary research between DGHI and DCI faculty with the larger goal of enabling investigators to leverage preliminary findings and data to obtain external funding and develop collaborations in LMIC. New investigators and/or new collaborations and projects in global health research are encouraged to apply and will be given special consideration.

Global Environmental Health Research - Request for Proposals
The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) invites pilot research proposals in the field of global environmental health. The complex biological, social, behavioral and economic aspects of global environmental health have led DGHI to identify this as one of its Research Priorities. Through this RFP, DGHI seeks to provide pilot funds to stimulate interdisciplinary research in global environmental health, with the larger goal of enabling investigators to leverage preliminary findings and data to obtain larger awards of external funding. We are especially interested in the effect of various aspects of vulnerability (age, geographic factors, co-morbid diseases, nutritional status, race, economic status, or genetics) on the relationship between environmental factors and health. Examples of relevant research themes include effects of climate change on emerging infectious disease; effects of urbanization on air pollution and human health; and access to safe drinking water. Collaborative and interdisciplinary proposals are especially encouraged. Investigators are particularly encouraged to submit proposals that plan to leverage existing studies, population cohorts, or data sets to address an important and novel global environmental health problem. New investigators in global environmental health research are encouraged to apply and will be given special consideration.

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.
