What is this offering?

The Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR) has launched the third round of the Promoting Academics and Community Engagement (PACE) Dissemination Grant to support community-academic partnerships in sharing Community Engaged Research (CEnR) results back to the community. The purpose of the grant is to support and promote the science of clinical and translational research, including CEnR, ready to be shared with the community.

For this grant opportunity, dissemination is defined as sharing information and research findings back to the communities of interest. A journal article submission is not considered dissemination for this opportunity and will not be eligible for funding.

Examples of dissemination plans that may be funded include, but are not limited to:

  • Co-presenting findings at a local conference, community town hall, or event
  • Co-writing a booklet or pamphlet for community use
  • Co-creating artwork that showcases the findings for community display
  • Storytelling about findings through community channels
  • Designing and implementing a local social media campaign
  • Providing testimony to local policymakers

Applicants may request from $2,500 up to $5,000 for a six-month period (with project ending no later than December 31, 2024). See the funding opportunity announcement for more details and examples of fundable projects. Please embed a link to FOA:
