The Fogarty Global Health Fellows Training Program is a new program which provides an 11 month global health training experience. The program provides stipend support, travel, and a small research budget to trainees each year to work at one of our 17 international sites in Sub-Saharan Africa (Accra, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Kampala,Lilongwe, Lusaka, Rakai, Swaziland) , South America (Buenos Aires, Lima, Rio de Janeiro,), India (Pune), Bangladesh, Thailand (Chiang Mai), or China (Bejing, Nanjing, Shanghai). Salaries for students are at the Fulbright level (approx $22,000) and for the post docs at the NRSA level depending on post graduate year (Contact Kathryn Salisbury to obtain a stipend estimate). If the applicant has an existing K award or other private source of funding, then Fogarty funds can be used to pay for travel and supplement research funding.
