All of Us Research Program Call for Applications for Mini-Grant Awards
Supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and sponsored by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing

The purpose of this mini-grant awards program is to facilitate the engagement of the academic nursing community with the All of Us Research Program, and, its focus on including historically underrepresented communities in biomedical research (UBR). Mini-grant awardees will increase awareness of the program and the importance of participation of members of UBR communities. This initiative uses collaboration between established community partners and academic nursing to disseminate information on the All of Us Research Program. 

For this competitive award, NIH and AACN encourage proposals that focus on the dissemination of NIH approved educational material about the All of Us Research Program through the development and execution of a local event in conjunction with a community partner that educates UBR communities about the All of Us Program with the use of NIH- approved educational material.
