The Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars, funded by NIH’s Fogarty International Center, Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH), and other Institutes and Centers, collaborates with U.S. university partners to provide mentored global health research training opportunities in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) around the world. Students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty both from the United States and from LMICs may apply through affiliated universities for funding to support a 12-month placement at a research institution in an LMIC.
