Minnesota Health Disparities Pilot Grants provides grants to encourage community-initiated research and foster sustainable long-term collaboration between community-based organizations and academic researchers on research projects focused on reducing and eliminating health disparities.

Projects must focus on one of the topics below:

  • Cancer-related health disparities in Minnesota
  • Reduction of health disparities in north Minneapolis
  • Dissemination research with a rigorous evaluation component

Any community-based, 501(c)(3) organization with an interest in health disparities is eligible to apply in partnership with an academic researcher from any campus at the University of Minnesota.

After the submission of the letter of intent, community-based organizations that have not chosen a research partner may be paired with a researcher with a similar interest. If the organization and researcher agree to work together, they will then be able to submit a full proposal.
