Continuity Collaboratory Fellowships (CCF)
The Health Disparities Research Center at UCR aims to create a rich interdisciplinary, diverse, and collaborative environment for health disparities research, infusing community-engaged research methods into the academic culture, and equipping investigators and community with tools and training to improve their extramural funding success. These fellowships are open for Faculty/Post-doctoral and Graduate Students who are pursuing health disparities community engaged research, please see descriptions for details.
Faculty/Post-doctoral Fellowship Award
Applicants must propose a “continuity activities plan” that will support existing community based health disparities projects. Each project’s continuity activities plan is unique, but may include data collection, analysis, dissemination activities, and planning activities. Award funds may be used for research-related expenses (e.g. data collection, participant compensation, transcription, dissemination activities), or research personnel including stipends for postdoctoral fellows or community partners.
Applicants must be UCR faculty members or senior postdoctoral fellows. Eligible projects include work from any discipline that address health disparities and have a community-based component. We will give additional weight to collaborative projects that include investigators from different professorial ranks or graduate students, practitioners, and/or community partners. Preference will be given to projects that uplift best practices for community-engaged research and aim to improve practice and policy to reduce health disparities.
