The Institute for Health Innovation is committed to supporting faculty activities at NKU. As part of our initiatives to enhance faculty accomplishments, we are offering two bi-annual funding opportunities.
Seed Grants provide support for faculty research, scholarship, creative endeavors, or teaching efforts in health, health literacy, healthcare, and the social determinants of health.
Branch Awards provide support for faculty in moving from “discussion” of interdisciplinary collaboration to action, which will heighten their professional visibility or the impact of NKU in the fields of health, health literacy, healthcare, or the social determinants of health.
No greater opportunity exists to change and improve lives than addressing population health challenges. The Institute is taking on the biggest, most important health challenges facing our communities.
The Institute's focus on working together is a key piece of NKU’s commitment to forging partnerships to address population health initiatives. When we come together, we can uncover breakthrough solutions to our society's most challenging population health problems.
Working with our campus and community partners, we are transforming health science education to better equip, empower, and most importantly, inspire health workers of tomorrow.

View the exhibit in the Health Innovation Center’s Eva G. and Oakley B. Farris Collaboration Room (HE 221).
