The Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars, which replaces the Fogarty International Scholars Program, is a one-year clinical research training program open to pre- and post-doctoral candidates currently enrolled in health-related doctoral programs. Fellows have the opportunity to work on a variety of international health projects in low- and middle-income sites in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Funding is available for clinical research in chronic non-communicable diseases, mental disorders and traditional global health problems such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and maternal and child health. The Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars provides 11 months of stipend support, health insurance, modest research training costs, travel costs, and a five-day orientation on the campus of the National Institutes of Health. Applications are now being accepted for the 2013-2014 fellowship program. All submissions are due in October 2012. The fellowship begins in July 2013.
The program is hosted by the Fogarty International Center, an arm of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that works to support and facilitate global health research conducted by national and international investigators, builds partnerships among health research institutions around the world, and trains scientists to address global health needs.
