In light of the current public debate regarding immigrants, it is vital that university-based research be available to the decision makers making choices that affect migrants and their health. PIMSA, a collaborative research program between Mexico and the U.S., provides opportunities for research that contributes to the development of evidence-based policies affecting migrants and their health.
PIMSA is now accepting Letters of Intent (LOIs) for Research Awards and grants for graduate students related to migration and health topics. Please view the full announcement for application details and timelines.
This cycle will be open to researchers and graduate students from any of the University of California campuses, University of Arizona, University of Texas at El Paso, and the University of Houston (graduate students only). Principal Investigators must work in collaboration with researchers from the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT for its Spanish acronym) accredited institutions in all Mexican states and Universidad National Autónoma de México (UNAM), or from Mexico's Secretariat of Health research institutions.
PIMSA is administered by the Health Initiative of the Americas (HIA) under the auspices of the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health.
Letters of Intent are due on July 12th.
