The application cycle is now open for the 2014-2015 Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars. This program is a one-year mentored clinical research training program open to pre- and post-doctoral candidates currently enrolled in health-related doctoral programs. Selected participants will have the opportunity to work on a variety of international health projects, including research in chronic non-communicable diseases; mental disorders; and traditional global health problems such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and maternal and child health, in low- and middle-income regions of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Participants will receive 11 months of stipend support, health insurance, research training costs, travel costs, and a five-day orientation on the campus of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Applications are processed through the program’s “support centers,” which includes the University of California, Berkeley; the University of California Global Health Institute; the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; the University of Washington; and Vanderbilt University. All applications are due in early December 2013 (specific deadlines vary by support center).
The Fogarty International Center and several other collaborating NIH institutes and centers sponsor the Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars. The Fogarty International Center is an arm of the NIH that supports and facilitates 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.
