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.
Up to 20 rural public and nonprofit entities forming a consortium of three or more organizations will be awarded total funding of $2 million to assist in the planning and development of an integrated health care network at the local level. By emphasizing the role of networks, the program creates a platform for medical care providers, social service providers, and community organizations to coalesce key elements of a rural health care delivery system for the purpose of improving local capacity and coordination of care. Previous Network Planning grantees have focused on behavioral health, care coordination, infrastructure, health information technology, and health education.
