CBPR Small Grants

This initiative's purpose is to fund small health-related community-based participatory research (CBPR) projects, led collaboratively by Morgan State University faculty, post-doctoral fellows or doctoral students, in partnership with a community-based initiative. The program creates opportunities for students and faculty to design and participate in health-related CBPR projects.

In 2016, 2017 and 2018, ASCEND will award approximately six projects per year of up to $20,000 each through a competitive review process.
