The South Carolina Public Health Association (SCPHA) and the South Carolina Center for Rural and Primary Healthcare (CRPH) are pleased to announce the establishment of the SCPHA-CRPH All of US Research Fellowship. This Fellowship will support a first-time or early career researcher or a researcher from a community underrepresented in biomedical research to conduct a research project focusing on South Carolina. The Fellowship award includes a $6000 stipend, thanks to the joint support of American Public Health Association's Affiliate Health Equity Research Support grant and CRPH. The stipend may be used as to support research costs
, including time and effort/salary, childcare, conference registration and travel. The Fellow will be provided mentorship on the research project by faculty within the CRPH. The project must be completed by May 2022 for presentation to a national audience of APHA members via webinar.
The research project must use the All of Us Research Hub, be specific to South Carolina, and include a rural focus. The All of Us Research Program, part of the National Institutes of Health, is building one of the largest biomedical data resources of its kind. The program aims to improve precision medicine by prioritizing inclusion of representatives from groups historically underrepresented in biomedical research, including people of color, people with disabilities, the LGBTQ+ community and people in rural areas. The All of Us Research Hub stores health data from a diverse group of participants from across the United States.
The application can be found here and will be available from October 12, 2021, until November 2nd, 2021 at 5:00 pm. Submissions will not be accepted after this deadline. Questions may be sent to Dr. Megan Weis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
