2015 Seed Grant Recipients

 

Identifying Processes Underlying Breastfeeding Success in Women Exposed to Adversity

Improving Health Care of Children with Rare Diseases in the Elkhart/South Bend Community

The Center offers three Seed Grants in the amount of $7,000 each to support joint faculty-student-community research partnerships addressing a need articulated by the community organization. These grants may support the planning and development of new projects, the expansion of existing ones, or the evaluation of on-going or previously completed projects.

The purposes of the grants are to foster faculty-student-community partnerships that: 

  • Result in measurable, positive impact in the South Bend area;
  • Reflect the investment of both faculty and community partner expertise in the local community; and
  • Offer students community-based learning opportunities that promote civic responsibility.

When the grant recipient is announced, the partnership will receive up to $6,000 to cover costs associated with the project, to be kept in the faculty partner's account. The remaining $1,000 will be similarly awarded within three years of the first part of the grant disbursement if the partnership can show: (1) evidence of the positive impact the partnership has had locally, and (2) a refereed publication, or other work considered of high merit in the faculty member’s field, or a presentation at a national or regional conference.
