2021 Diversity Chair Investigator Awards Applications Now Open

Applications are now open for the 2021 Department of Medicine Diversity Chair Awards.

Submissions are due June 30, 2021 and the award period will start September 1, 2021.

The Diversity Chair Awards program supports research that addresses health inequity, social determinants of health, cultural competence, outcomes improvement, health system access/utilization for racial, ethnic and sexual and gender minorities, among many other possibilities. Ideas that are innovative and impactful and demonstrate a commitment to diversity, a benefit to individuals from underserved communities or populations, or the elimination of health care disparities are welcome. Four grants of $50,000 each will be distributed.

The awards are open to Instructors and Assistant Professors (all lines), whose primary appointment is in the Department of Medicine.  All applicants must be employed at Stanford for the duration of the award.
