The Herschel S. Horowitz Center for Health Literacy established a Seed Grant Program for research projects that bear directly on the Center’s mission of advancing science, education and community action in health literacy. The goal of the seed grant is to encourage innovative, evidence-based research projects that address health literacy and its close correlate, health communication. Up to $15,000 is awarded during the inaugural funding year, and more than one seed grant can be awarded.

Priority is given to research projects that a) include Center affiliate faculty as co-investigators; b) significantly involve graduate students as investigators or research assistants; and c) have the potential to garner external research support in the future.
