Charles J. Strosacker Foundation Research Fund for Health and Risk Communication

The Health & Risk Communication Center administers the Charles J. Strosacker Foundation Research Fund for Health and Risk Communication, which is generously supported by a $500K endowment fund. This fund provides resources for graduate students to engage in hands-on research, apply theoretical constructs to real-world health practices, and share results and impacts from their projects with their community partners. Priority is placed on projects to be implemented in Michigan, and in mid-Michigan specifically. The Strosacker Foundation endowment will support a number of $4,000 awards, administered annually.
