Posted: 2/6/2018 (Funding)

The Department of Global Health Funding for Fieldwork application is now available. These funding opportunities are available to full-time UW graduate students, professional students and some opportunities for medical residents, and Global Health Minor undergraduate students to help support short term fieldwork experiences in global health. Please be sure to read the application requirements thoroughly for each fellowship program and identify those programs for which you qualify.

The following fellowships in the DGH Funding for Fieldwork application are

  • Warren George Povey Endowed Fund for Global Health Students Fellowship
  • Global Opportunities in Health (GO Health) Fellowship (Please note a special call in the application for applicants to work in the Merrueshi Village in Kenya)
  • Stergachis Endowed Fellowship in International Exchange
  • Thomas Francis Jr., Global Health Fellowship

Details for these programs and list of past participants can be found on the GHRC Funding for Fieldwork page.

This year the SCOPE fellowship conducted an early round of applications and have selected their fellows for the 2018-19 year. Therefore, the SCOPE fellowship is not included in this cycle’s DGH Funding for Fieldwork Application.

Students who are still exploring other opportunities and interested in working with the Massai Community in Merrueshi Village are encouraged to contact Dr. Carey Farquhar at cfarq@uw.edu to discuss the opportunity. Each year one to two students are selected to work with the Massai Association and Dr. Farquhar.
