Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA institutions of higher education to promote diversity in public health and health care. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. Funding is intended to encourage students from underserved or underrepresented backgrounds to enter Maternal and Child Health (MCH) public health and MCH-related health professions in order to improve levels of representation, reduce health disparities, and increase access to health care for vulnerable and underserved MCH populations, including those from racially/ethnically diverse backgrounds.

Few training programs currently focus on recruiting undergraduate students into MCH professions. The LEAP Program’s unique focus on recruiting diverse undergraduate student cohorts fills a critical gap by building and maintaining a diversified workforce that is reflective of and prepared to address the distinct needs of MCH populations. The specific objectives of the LEAP Program are to:

  1. Recruit and support undergraduate trainees from diverse, underserved, and/or underrepresented backgrounds to:
    • Increase the number of undergraduate students from underrepresented backgrounds exposed to learning opportunities in MCH;
    • Promote development and interest in careers in MCH; and,
    • Increase their cultural responsiveness and skills in addressing health disparities in underserved communities.
  2. Foster development of interdisciplinary leadership and research skills training at the undergraduate level in MCH public health and MCH-related health professions in preparation for careers in MCH.
  3. Provide mentorship and internship opportunities to undergraduate students through preceptorships with MCH professionals, graduate students, and MCH/Title V organizations in preparation for graduate/post-graduate education/training in MCH.
  4. Increase access to MCH undergraduate education and training through innovative and alternative methods, such as telehealth, virtual instruction, or distance-learning modalities.
