Our program aims to support projects across a diverse range of research topics. However, we expect targeted funding for proposals on HIV, cancer, diabetes, digestive and kidney diseases, mental health, and/or neurological disorders.
Since 2012, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Johns Hopkins University, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Tulane University have offered mentored research training through the UJMT Fogarty Global Health Fellowship program, funded by the Fogarty International Center within the National Institutes of Health.
This consortium brings together four top-ranked universities and their respective international research training sites in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Trainee research projects are supported by mentors with expertise in clinical, public health, laboratory, and implementation research. Each trainee works with a team of mentors, including at least one U.S. and one international member to monitor the trainee’s progress and provide on-site supervision.
Full award: A 12-month full-time appointment and includes a monthly stipend, research funds, health insurance and emergency medical and evacuation insurance, and travel funds.
Travel and research award: A 12-month full-time appointment and includes research funds, health insurance and emergency medical and evacuation insurance, and travel funds.
