The Global Health Equity Scholars (GHES) fellowship is a one-year mentored research fellowship sponsored by the Fogarty International Center (FIC) and several collaborating institutes and centers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The GHES program brings together a consortium that includes the University of California, Berkeley, Florida International University, Stanford University, and Yale University; and 20 affiliated international sites across 16 countries.
The main objective of the program is to generate a new and young cadre of global health researchers, educators, and professionals who will be prepared to address the new challenges in global health. The program will provide fellows with outstanding, interdisciplinary education and training in innovative global health research to promote health equity for populations around the world.
This is a great international experience for postdoctoral fellows, upper-level PhD students and professional school (MD, DVM, DrPH, DDS, PharmD) students, and junior faculty. It provides one-year research training fellowship opportunities in global health at top-ranked, NIH-funded centers abroad.
This year, the GHES is welcoming applications from post-docs with an appointment at institutions outside of the consortium with prior approval from the Program Manager. Additional information can be found here.
The application deadline for this round of awards is Monday, December 1, 2014.
