UNC-CH Department of Family Medicine Small Grants Program

Funding to support Programs for Research/Scholarship and FM Special Needs Fund for Faculty Research.

A message from Don Pathman, Director of Family Medicine Research.


  With the generosity of the Department and its donors, and through a collaboration of the Department’s Medical Student, Residency and Research Programs, all faculty of the department can now access a Small Grants Program for Research/Scholarship and a new Special Needs Fund for Faculty Research. Together these programs can provide funds in their first year to support faculty research and scholarship, especially as they also involve students and residents.

  The two enclosed fliers describe these programs in their goals, eligibility, potential uses for funds and application processes. These funds are here to support our scholarship—request them! And please ask us about any questions. Click to download forms: Department Special Needs Fund for Research and FM Small Grants Program Solicitation.
