GHR Foundation AEG Grant Funding
The Henrietta Schmoll School of Health received an $18 million Academic Excellence Grant (AEG) from the GHR Foundation in 2016 to improve societal health and well-being by preparing high quality providers capable of practicing in emerging health-related environments focused on interprofessional collaborative practice, cultural fluency, and ecological approaches to health with particular emphasis on global health, senior living, and primary care. Funding has been made available to the broader St. Kate's community to promote and advance this work. Proposals must align to the AEG framework and grant pillars. The following funding mechanisms are available for faculty, staff and students.
Faculty/Staff Conference Travel Awards
Faculty and staff may apply for up to $2,000 for international and $1,400 for domestic conference funding, to be used in conjunction with APDC Travel Awards, to support staff/faculty presenting abroad as a representative of St. Catherine University. Limited funds are available and selection priority will be given to presentations (papers, posters, invited presentations) that best align with grant priorities as defined in the AEG Conceptual Framework.
