The Joseph “Chip” Hughes Worker Education & Training Research Fund

  Joseph “Chip” Hughes

The Joseph “Chip” Hughes Worker Education and Training Research Fund has been established to help students, faculty, and staff kickstart new research or practice ideas to improve worker training and health, allowing people with an interest in helping vulnerable worker communities conduct innovative research or service projects. The hope is that these funds will incentivize the study of the health and well-being of workers, which too often goes unexplored.

Awarded at the discretion of the Dean of the Gillings School of Global Public Health, in consultation with the Research, Innovation and Global Solutions Office, the funding is open to students, faculty, and staff, with an open/rolling application process.  Awards will be up to $2,000. This current round of applications closed on November 15, and the next round will open again in the Spring 2023 semester.
