Up to seven students can conduct research overseas this summer through the new UNMC College of Public Health Summer Global Health Fellowship Program.
The 10-week fellowships, provided through the office of Dean Ali S. Khan, M.D., M.P.H., are open to all UNMC students, with preferences given to public health students, faculty-led proposals and projects. Multidisciplinary applications where public health students work with other UNMC students will receive special consideration, but is not a requirement.
Each project will receive between $4,000 and $7,000 to support the cost of international travel, visa fees, air ambulance, on-site room and board, local travel and other research-related expenses for the student, said Pinaki Panigrahi, M.D., director, Center for Global Health and Development, College of Public Health.
