CGHSR is pleased to announce the AHC recipients of our first Faculty Travel Awards for travel in Spring-Summer 2017 to further global health research collaborations in Thailand and Uganda:
Applications are now open for the Uganda Research Training Collaborative. The Uganda RTC gives students in the University of Minnesota’s Academic Health Center and Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda an opportunity and funding to gain hands-on experience in global health research. Under the mentorship of UMN and Makerere faculty members, student teams propose small-scale research projects to be carried out in about one year. Applications are now open and are due by December 12, 2016.
The Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility is pleased to announce the recipients of the Academic Health Center’s Global Health Seed Grants for research in Uganda.
All travelers entering Uganda will no longer be able to obtain a short or long term visa at the airport in Entebbe as they have been able to in the past. As of July 1, 2016 travelers must complete the procedures and application form found at the Directorate of Citizenship and Immigration Control website.
There has been lots of activity at the Uganda Hub since last fall's Hub Launch!
