Fogarty Global Health Fellows
Current and past trainees
Read the Mentor Spotlight about Dominic Travis in the Jan - Mar 2015 edition of the NPGH Fogarty Global Health Fellows Newsletter.
These 12-month fellowships focused on critical, inter-related areas of health in low-income countries and provide outstanding opportunities for highly motivated individuals to experience research training at top-ranked, NIH-funded research centers. Each year the fellowships begin with an intensive orientation program in July, followed by mentored clinical research training at international partner institutions.
Post-doctorate trainees and doctoral students in the health professions are eligible to apply.
The fellowship is available at numerous University of Minnesota sites. It may also be possible for applicants to arrange for training available at our Consortium research partner sites.
Trainees are expected to commit to spending the duration of their 11-month fellowship at their research site. The following compensation is available:
- Living stipend
- Health insurance subsidy
- Round-trip airfare to an international training site and travel expenses
- Travel to NIH orientation in Bethesda, MD
- Up to $10,000 toward research expenses
