Faculty and students have the opportunity to design and receive funds for projects that benefit the physical, mental and financial health of the campus community. To realize the lofty goal of becoming America’s healthiest campus, the College of Health Sciences and the College of Business and Economics are creating intramural funding opportunities to drive innovation and fulfill the BroncoFit initiative.
Faculty and students are encouraged to bring questions, ideas and enthusiasm to the first campus-wide BroncoFit meeting from 3-5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 21, in the Student Union Bishop Barnwell Room. Here, grant opportunities – including how to apply for funding – will be discussed in further detail.
The goal of BroncoFit is to create a new model of health promotion and health care delivery that can be used to generate programs, courses, apps and policies that, in turn, will create more knowledgeable health consumers. Faculty and faculty/student teams are encouraged to apply for grants in areas such as:
- Testing business models
- Rethinking patient visits and education within an integrated health clinic
- Achieving meaningful data utilization by integrating data systems within Boise State
- Developing novel recruitment and retention strategies for health and/or wellness program interventions
- Developing revolutionary tools to assess health behavior engagement and adherence using remote technology and data capturing systems
- Developing innovative ways of promoting health promoting decisions and behaviors
Proposed projects should be realistic and executable within a one-year award period. Funding will vary based on project scope. The grants will not pay any indirect costs.
