International Research Opportunity for Early-Career Health Researchers

Are you an early-career health researcher — a physician, veterinarian, dentist, or scientist — with an idea for a project that could help advance the cause of health in poor or middle-income countries?  If so, the National Institutes of Health’s Fogarty International Center has announced a program that could get your research off the ground, broaden your horizons, and boost your career. 

The Fogarty Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars has awarded $20.3 million over 5 years to allow consortia of institutions (coordinated by “support centers” at five universities) to support members of the “the next generation of global health scientists” in nearly year-long, mentored research projects in any of 27 countries.  General information about the program  is here.  Applications can be submitted through any of the 5 support centers.  You can find specific application requirements for each of the five consortia here.
