Application Deadline: December 1, 2016
The Global Health Fellowship Program is a 12-month clinical research training program for post-doctorate trainees and doctoral students in the health professions, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health’s Fogarty International Center (FIC) in partnership with several NIH Institutes and Offices.
The Northern/Pacific Global Health Research Fellows Training Consortium is a partnership between the Universities of Washington, Hawaii, Michigan and Minnesota; with international partnerships in Kenya, Cameroon, Uganda, Ghana, Peru, Thailand and India. These institutions were chosen due to our strong collaborative history and our existing NIH training grant programs; together we have 242 years of collaboration with the seven international partner countries in our consortium.
Research and training themes currently addressed by Consortium members range across a wide spectrum of health themes, including infectious diseases (HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, herpes viruses, HPV, HTLV), key non-communicable and chronic health problems (cancer, pulmonary and cardiovascular disease, child development and mental health, women’s health, genetics, and nutrition), environmental (built environment, tobacco use, lead toxicity, slum upgrading), trauma, policy, nursing, oral health, engineering and implementation science – making these Consortium partnerships ideal locations to mentor trainees from a wide variety of disciplines and provide an interdisciplinary training environment for the next generation of Global Health researchers.
Global Health Fellowships provide a living stipend for 12 months, modest research training costs, travel costs to and from the international collaborating country, and an orientation at NIH in July.
- US Fellow living stipend: USD $51,120 (based on PGY scale)
- US Scholar living stipend: USD $23,500
- International Fellow/Scholar living stipend: varies with local cost-of-living conditions (varies between $9,000-$27,500 USD)
- Fellow research funds: USD $10,000
- Scholar research funds: USD $7,500
