The Consortium for Families and Health Research (C-FAHR) was formed in Spring 2014, after a core group of interdisciplinary faculty received a competitive grant to develop a 'transformative cluster hire' that builds on the existing strengths of current University of Utah faculty and expands the potential for interdisciplinary collaboration among scholars conducting cutting-edge research related to health and families across the lifespan.
C-FAHR brings together nearly 100 faculty members from 11 departments across 5 colleges. It has initiated a faculty fellows program (Spring of 2018) to train students in interdisciplinary approaches to research. C-FAHR methodologists received approval to be an ICPSR summer program, a consortium of over 750 academic institutes that provides leadership and training in data access and methods of social science research.
C-FAHR is comprised of faculty and graduate students representing more than 11 departments across 5 colleges at the University of Utah.
C-FAHR is currently requesting applications for pilot grants (up to $10k), team incentive & development funds ($5k, renewable for up to $10k), and student research or travel awards ($500). All funding requests are due by 5pm on February 1, 2018.
This will be the only opportunity to apply for C-FAHR Research Funds during the 2017-2018 academic year.
