10:28 a.m., March 12, 2012--The Delaware Health Sciences Alliance (DHSA) has issued a request for proposals for education pilot grants. The deadline is May 1.

Educators from the four partner institutions—Christiana Care Health System, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, Thomas Jefferson University, and the University of Delaware—are invited to submit five-page education/scholarly activity research or project proposals. Proposals can focus on either new, unique, inter-institutional educational programs or educational research questions.

Campus Stories

Finkel to speak

David Finkel, the Pulitzer-Prize winning author of "Thank You for Your Service," will visit UD to discuss his book with freshmen as part of the 2014 First Year Common Reader Program.

End the silence

More than 300 members of the UD community, including students, faculty, staff and alumni, gathered on the steps of Memorial Hall and the nearby North Green on Sept. 19 to voice their concerns regarding sexual harassment and assault.

Projects will be selected based on educational merit, the potential to lead to applicability within DHSA and nationally, and the ability of the education team to demonstrate successful collaboration among the institutions.

Awards will be up to $20,000 for 24 months.

The RFP can be downloaded at this website.

Last year’s competitive process resulted in an award to a team led by Michael Peterson, chair of UD's Department of Behavioral Health and Nutrition, to develop a post-baccalaureate health coaching certification program at UD.
