Funding Details: AHW’s Call for Applications: Experiential Projects in Community Health aims to support current MCW learners in carrying out community-based health improvement projects in partnership with Wisconsin-based community organizations to support the advancement of Wisconsin’s health workforce and community health initiatives.

Successful applicants will identify a community-based health need impacting Wisconsin communities and engage with an eligible MCW faculty member and community collaborator to propose and implement a feasible approach to contribute to addressing the identified need.

Promising projects funded through this call will consider:

  • How the proposed project will positively contribute to impacting long-term health and health equity in Wisconsin
  • How the proposed project will positively impact Wisconsin’s health workforce through the applicant’s proposed learning and potential impact on their career path
  • How the project aims are distinct from prior or existing funded projects

AHW encourages projects in alignment with its focus areas of heart health, healthy minds, and cancer. However, work outside of these focus areas will also be considered.
