The Global Health Equity Scholar Fellowship is a 12-month mentored research training program for post-doctoral fellows, upper-level PhD students and professional school (MD, DVM, DrPH, PharmD) students. It is part of the Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars sponsored by the Fogarty International Center (FIC) and several collaborating institutes and centers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The GHES program brings together a consortium that includes Stanford University, the University of California, Berkeley, Florida International University and Yale University.
The GHES program supports a one-year mentored research fellowship for investigators who are interested in studying diseases and conditions in low and middle-income countries (LMIC). The main objective of the program is to generate a new and cadre of global health researchers, educators, and professionals who will be prepared to address the new challenges in global health. These may include health challenges that arise from the world’s burgeoning human settlements known as slums that have developed in urban and rural communities.
We welcome applications from post-docs with an appointment at ANY U.S. ACADEMIC INSTITUTION (including individuals who will be completing their PhD, DVM, MD, etc.). Applicants from outside of our consortium (Yale, FIU, Stanford, UC Berkeley) should review the GHES eligibility criteria and forward the requested information to the GHES program manager to verify eligibility.

The GHES consortium offers training opportunities at 34 affiliated international sites across 25 countries.
GHES fellows can choose to work at any of the affiliated sites, not just those sponsored by their home institution.
