Now Open: Grant Opportunity from the USAID-Funded STAR Project

The Sustaining Technical and Analytic Resources (STAR) Project, on which CUGH is a partner, has opened its Request for Application (RfA) for its the Collaboration Laboratory. Eligible academic institutions engaged in global health are invited to apply for this opportunity via the STAR website.

What is the Collaboration Laboratory?
The Collaboration Laboratory is STAR’s facilitated approach to test, refine, and document what works and what does not in creating and sustaining academic partnerships. Through the Collaboration Laboratory, paired academic institutions will spend one year working toward a concrete goal or objective. Simultaneously, STAR staff will document their successes, challenges and lessons learned for internal and external learning.

What are the goals of the Collaboration Laboratory?
The aim of the Collaboration Laboratory is to better understand the components that contribute to a strong, equitable partnership.

Additional goals include:

  • Building a diverse network of stronger academic partnerships to better support global health programming
  • Facilitating dialogue among academic institutions
  • Reframing what a mutually benefiting, respectful partnership looks like between US and LMIC academic institutions

    Applications will close on August 9 at 5 PM ET.

    Academic institutions are not required to be CUGH members to apply. Please help us spread the word among your network:

  • Download the Social Media Toolkit and help us spread the word through Twitter and Facebook

    STAR is a five-year Project of the Public Health Institute, funded by USAID and implemented in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University (JHU), the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH).
