The mission of the Sparkman Center for Global Health (Sparkman Center) at UAB is to contribute to solutions of health problems in developing countries through undergraduate and graduate-level public health education, research, and training programs. These programs are organized collaboratively with academic institutions, international agencies, and health ministries within the host country. Additionally, the Sparkman Center works to enhance the capacity of the UAB community to engage, prepare, and support current and future health professionals in a global health agenda.
The Sparkman Center will provide funding for internal grant applications that propose research projects, public health practice, and global health & development projects that support the Sparkman Center’s mission of promoting health in less developed countries. All projects should have a strong research or evaluation component. Only those applications that are aligned with the Sparkman Center mission will be considered for funding through this mechanism. We anticipate funding 3-5 applications of up to $20,000 each.
