Community + UCSF Mount Zion Awards address unmet health-related needs in San Francisco by supporting projects that originate at, connect with, or relate to the UCSF Mount Zion Campus.
There are two types of award mechanisms:
One-year grants of up to $75,000 for proof-of-concept projects for MZ Campus-based, healthcare-related work in the community. These projects do not require an existing community partner, but the intent is to support work that will build toward meaningful engagement with community partners.
Single- or multi-year grants of up to $150,000 per year (maximum of three years) for collaborative projects between Mount Zion Campus-based health professionals and one or more community partners.
