Climate Change and Human Health Seed Grants
Amount: $2,500 – $50,000
Deadline: June 29, 2022
The Burroughs Wellcome Fund aims to stimulate the growth of new connections between scholars working in largely disconnected fields who might together change the course of climate change’s impact on human health. Over the next two years, we will dedicate $1M to supporting small, early-stage grants of $2,500 – $50,000 toward achieving this goal.
