Deadline: November 1, 2022
Applications are open for the UJMT Fogarty Global Health Fellowship 2023-2024. The Fellowship aims to support projects across a diverse range of research topics. However, they expect targeted funding for proposals on HIV, mental health, and neurological disorders.
Since 2012, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Johns Hopkins University, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Tulane University have offered mentored research training through the UJMT Fogarty Global Health Fellowship programme, funded by the Fogarty International Center within the National Institutes of Health.
This consortium brings together four top-ranked universities and their respective international research training sites in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Trainee research projects are supported by mentors with expertise in clinical, public health, laboratory, and implementation research. Each trainee works with a team of mentors, including at least one U.S. and one international member to monitor the trainee’s progress and provide on-site supervision.
- Full award: A 12-month full-time appointment and includes a monthly stipend, research funds, health insurance and emergency medical and evacuation insurance, and travel funds.
- Travel and research award: A 12-month full-time appointment and includes research funds, health insurance and emergency medical and evacuation insurance, and travel funds.
- United States-based trainees:
- Citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.
- Candidates from any U.S. institution are eligible, though applicants from the four consortium universities may be given priority
- Applicants from underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply.
- International trainees:
- They fund postdoctoral researchers who are citizens of one of 16 countries where there are program affiliated research institutions. Typically, international trainees have an appointment or affiliation with the training site and local mentors.
- Postdoctoral applicants (U.S. and foreign nationals):
- Completion of a graduate degree —MD, PhD, DrPH, DVM, PharmD, or equivalent — by July of the academic year.
- Doctoral applicants (U.S. only):
- enrolled in a graduate degree program at a U.S. or affiliated international institution
- able to defer studies over the course of the fellowship to focus on research activities
- in later stages of training (e.g., following comprehensive examinations, after clinical rotations) will be given priority.
- For postdoctoral candidates priority is given to those with likely faculty appointment during or immediately after completing the fellowship.
- All applicants will be judged primarily on the following criteria: training record to date, quality of the research project, previous publications, letters of recommendation, institutional support in terms of supplemental funding and potential faculty appointment, and the likelihood of a successful research career and future academic plans.
