HBNU Fogarty Global Health Training Program 2019/2020 (Fully-funded to the United States)
Deadline: November 1, 2018
Applications for the HBNU Fogarty Global Health Training Program 2019 are open. The HBNU Fogarty Global Health Training Program offers opportunities in global health research training for pre- and post-doctoral candidates from the U.S. and lower-middle-income countries (LMICs).
The Fogarty Global Health Training Program focuses on the sustainable development goals (SDGs) aim to improve health and wellbeing by 2030. Specifically, the expanded focus on this goal reflects the long-neglected population-level health issues that are forecasted to contribute to significant morbidity and mortality globally, and specifically in low- and middle income countries (LMICs). The need for research and innovation on low-cost intervention in these regions is critical.
The program provides opportunities to generate a new cadre of global health researchers, educators, and professionals who will be prepared to address the new challenges in global health. The program provides fellows with a 12-month, mentored research fellowship in innovative global health research to promote health equity for populations around the world.
The HBNU Fogarty Global Health Training Program is sponsored by the Fogarty International Center (FIC) and several collaborating Institutes and Centers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
