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.

Innovative Scholarship Grants

Through Innovative Scholarship Grants, faculty in any discipline, college, or school may apply for up to $15,000 to support research related to the AEG Conceptual Framework. To be competitive, your proposal must demonstrate plans for leveraging the Innovative Scholarship Grant to seed externally-funded support for additional research related to the GHR grant pillars. In addition, priority points will be given to proposals that include inter-professional work across schools, colleges, and departments and that engage students in research.

Eligibility: St. Catherine University faculty members are eligible to apply. Adjuncts are not eligible to apply as PIs, but can be involved on the grant as a Co-PI or collaborator. 


  • Fall applications are due October 15
