The Community Engagement and Research (CEAR) Core of the Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics at the University of Pennsylvania is sponsoring a pilot grant program to fund research with public and community health relevance.

Applications are due on Friday, March 1, 2024 at 5 p.m.

The CEAR Core is seeking proposals that foster community-based research, especially studies that use a participatory framework. This includes research conducted in community settings or using a participatory research framework that actively involves community stakeholders in project conceptualization, design, implementation, and/or evaluation.

This year's priority theme is place-based research (related to geographic neighborhoods or communities) with a health equity focus. We are especially interested in receiving proposals under this theme but will also consider proposals on other topics.


Please see the grant application PDF  for full details on eligibility and requirements.


Questions can be addressed to Krista Scheffey and Emma Soliva.
