Ambassador Activities in Action: Engaging the PCOR Community in Research

A great example of recruiting applicants for funding opportunities is the S.T.A.R. Initiative.

The S. T. A. R. Initiative is a PCORI Ambassador-created initiative consisting of a mobile application that allows African-American women to connect with researchers and educational curricula.

The product is universal, replicable, and can be used by any community. Regina Greer- Smith, an Inaugural PCORI Ambassador, won a $5,000 prize for honorable mention in this PCORI Challenge Initiative.
