To encourage research in the area of maternal health literacy (MHL).

These small grants are intended to defray research costs or provide seed money to encourage personal and academic development of early career researchers and to equip them with the skills needed for future success. The goal is to allow young scholars to advance their knowledge base within the field of maternal health literacy, establish new contacts and mentors, and/or enhance their graduate work through the experience gained in other research cultures.
