COVID-19 grants open for health equity work

The Johns Hopkins Alliance for a Healthier World is offering a new round of Launchpad Grants specifically aimed at addressing the health equity and social justice issues around COVID-19.

This includes the psycho-social, behavioral, epidemiological, economic, and policy impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic as it upends many of the activities of daily life in the United States and in countries around the world. Drastic measures taken to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus will impact virtually every system (food, health, education, environment, etc.) depended upon for social stability, and will disproportionately impact marginalized members of society, including low-income, minority, immigrant, disabled, and the recently unemployed.

  • Who is eligible: Full-time faculty or staff from across Johns Hopkins University: Applied Physics Laboratory, Berman Institute of Bioethics, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Carey Business School, Jhpiego, Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, School of Advanced International Studies, Peabody Institute, School of Education, School of Medicine, School of Nursing, Whiting School of Engineering
  • Grant award amount: Minimum of five grant awards of up to $25,000 per award
  • Start date: April 2020 (potential for rolling awards announcements)
  • Grant period: Up to 12 months from selected start date
  • Application deadline: 11:59 p.m., Sunday, April 5, 2020
