Request for Proposals (RFP)
Spirit of EAGLES
Request for Community Project Funding
Despite clear gains in public health that have resulted from modern health care and disease prevention efforts, these benefits have not accrued evenly among all US population groups. In recognition of disparities in cancer occurrence in minority peoples, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has funded Special Populations Networks, including the Spirit of EAGLES. The name, Spirit of EAGLES, reflects our commitment to the areas of education, advocacy, grants, leadership, elders, scholarships and survivors. The Spirit of EAGLES is based at the Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center in Rochester, Minnesota. This grant funding opportunity is intended to build community capacity while adhering to the principles of community-based participatory research (CBPR).
