Project grants provide financial support for chapters to implement student lead health education projects or conduct student research proposals. A funded project should provide for the advancement of health education as well as the enhancement of the health of the community.
The project grants are evaluated on appropriate literature foundation, measurable objectives, budget with a justification and itemized spreadsheet, timeline, and an evaluation plan. Authors of funded projects are expected to disseminate their findings in a professional venue (i.e. The Student Monograph, The Vision, or conference proceedings).
Chapters must have submitted the previous year’s annual report (with the chapter’s budget information) to be eligible for funding. For all approved Project Grants, proposals must be submitted before the project begins and a final report and published results are required. This may include submitting for presentation at a conference or submitting to The Student Monograph or The Vision (newsletter).
Any current student member of Eta Sigma Gamma is eligible to apply. Grants can be awarded annually to an undergraduate student, a graduate student or a chapter.
