What is Microresearch?
Microsearch is a community-based research approach that supports, with small “seed grant” funding, locally generated and implemented projects leading to local solutions to problems in underserved communities, resulting in big impact.
Rural PREP’s Microresearch Approach
Rural PREP is providing multiple awards of up to $4,000 each to encourage research by learners in rural health professions education and training about:
- Rural primary care
- Rural population health
- Rural health workforce education and training
A faculty mentor will be assigned by Rural PREP or approved as requested by the student.
Who is eligible to apply?
Current students in a medical school or a nurse practitioner or physician assistant program, residents in a rural physician residency program, or other health professionals training for primary care practice in a rural location.
We will begin reviewing the first group of applications after January 12. If funding remains after the first review, we will fund additional applicants through March 1 on a rolling basis until all funds are expended.
