The Center for Global Public Health established its annual graduate student research fellowships in 2008 to provide experiential learning for Berkeley students who are interested in global public health. This year, eight to ten research fellowships in the amount of $3,000-$5,000 will be awarded to qualified students who are selected, via a competitive evaluation process, to support 8-12 weeks of international travel and research activities in Summer 2018.
The project must take place at an approved faculty research site in a low- to middle-income country (LMIC). These sites are often long-term field study sites of UC Berkeley and/or UC San Francisco (UCSF) faculty members. The student’s primary supervisor can be their on-site field supervisor for the proposed research, but students must also have a direct faculty supervisor from UC Berkeley or UCSF who will help oversee their work and provide a letter of support and has signed the affiliation agreement with the CGPH.
The CGPH welcomes proposed research projects in all public health disciplines.
