The College of Health and Human Services has been awarded funding for research from the National Institutes of Health each year for the past decade. Only a few of the nation's schools and colleges of allied health receive these prestigious research awards so consistently. This funding has a direct, positive impact on the health and welfare of people who live in Michigan and beyond.

Many of our faculty members are active researchers, and their research, scholarly activities and service make a significant contribution to their health and human services disciplines and to their teaching. Students assist with faculty projects and also engage in and present research projects of their own.

We are proud of our research and service accomplishments, and we actively seek ways to recognize service and expand the research capabilities and scholarly productivity of college faculty.

Intent to Submit New External Grant Proposal

The Intent to Submit New External Grant Proposal form must be completed and submitted prior to any external grant proposal being submitted to the Office of the Vice-President of Research (OVPR). It is recommended that the form be completed as early in the grant development process as possible in order to ensure that the proposal will be approved.


Research Grant Awards

Effective fall 2019, CHHS is offering two research incentive grant award competitions for faculty:

  • The Research Development Award is provided to a faculty member who is seeking funding for research support costs that could lead to the development of a grant application or research contract.
  • The Innovation Team Award is provided to faculty who collaborate to propose an innovative project that will lead to development of a grant application or research contract.

Fall submissions are due in October; spring submissions in March. See the policy document for due dates.
