Population Health Faculty Fellows

Applications for the Spring 2022 Center for Population Health Faculty Fellows will open this fall.


The Center for Population Health (CPH) is committed to supporting faculty activities at Xavier University. As part of our initiatives to enhance faculty accomplishments, we are offering a funding opportunity for interdisciplinary collaborative research. Three grants will be funded for spring of 2021.


The CPH grants can provide support for faculty research, scholarship, creative endeavors, or teaching efforts related to population health, including prevention, health disparities, wellness, and the social determinants of health.  They are aimed at assisting faculty members in the initial phases of research, scholarship, or creative projects or in developing innovative courses or course sequences. These activities are required to be collaborative (between Xavier and outside organization or different programs at Xavier) and may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  1. Seed funding of empirical studies
  2. Support for students who will help in a collaborative interdisciplinary project
  3. Time for significant programmatic revision or development
  4. Interdisciplinary or cross-college collaboration
  5. Entrepreneurial or community endeavors
  6. Grant application preparation

 *Individuals may request up to a maximum of $3,000.

Awardees are required to demonstrate collaboration other academic programs at Xavier then their own and may also include external partners. Awardees must agree to share their outcomes with the campus community. Recipients will make a presentation that includes the benefits received from the grant at a Xavier Center for Population Health sponsored gathering or will share a brief report on their experiences to be posted on the Center’s website. Where appropriate, CPH will seek press coverage and other publicity for programs and events supported by grants. The report will be submitted by the beginning of the semester.


The proposal deadline will be determined later this fall.
