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 aligned with the framework for health: interprofessional collaborative practice, cultural fluency, and ecological approaches to health. Proposals will be strengthened if they also address 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.

Framework for Health: 

Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (ICP) 

When multiple health workers from different backgrounds work together with patients, families, careers, and communities to deliver the highest quality of care (WHO, 2010)

Cultural Fluency

Ability to navigate the many dimensions of culture needed to build shared meaning and understanding with people from other cultures. It is comprised of several skills such as working with ambiguity, flexibility, respect, empathy and adaptability (Inoue, 2007)

Ecological Approach

Grounded in the understanding that the conditions that result in individual health or illness arise out of the interaction between an individual’s traits and their physical and sociocultural environment and are influenced on multiple levels (e.g. intrapersonal, interpersonal, organizational, community and policy (Sallis & Owen, 2015)

GHR Foundation Legacy Grant Funding

The Henrietta Schmoll School of Health received a $5 million Perpetual Legacy Grant from the GHR Foundation in 2019 with the aims of 1) reimagining the HSSH, 2) creating new and scalable clinic models, and 3) advancing a university-wide inclusive excellence initiative. Funding has been made available to the broader St. Kate's community to promote and advance this work. Proposals must align to the Legacy Grant aims. 

General Proposals

Recognizing that innovative ideas evolve outside of the Innovative Scholarship Grants, funds are available for innovative projects and programs across the university. This form is to serve as a tool for individuals to submit proposals for funding. All departments and employees are eligible to submit proposals. As each grant year proceeds there will be variable funds available. At year-end as funds are identified, particular grant pillars might be designated as priority concentrations for the next FY.
