Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships in Public Health
The Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships are offered through a partnership between the Fulbright Program and the Fogarty International Center of the U.S. National Institutes of Health. These awards were established to promote the expansion of research in public health and clinical research in resource-limited settings.
The Fogarty International Center, NIH, will provide support to the research training site and may provide orientation for the fellows at the NIH. In addition, NIH will provide a pre-departure orientation for selected Fellows in Washington, DC.
To participate in the Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships in Public Health, the applicant must be a U.S. citizen and:
- Be enrolled in graduate or medical school. Applicants who hold a doctorate are ineligible.
- Have sufficient proficiency in the host language to carry out the project required.
Other basic requirements and process for applying for the Fulbright-Fogarty Program are the same as for any Fulbright U.S. Student Study/Research Grant.
The Fulbright Program and the National Geographic Society are partnering to provide a unique Fulbright opportunity, the Fulbright-National Geographic Award. This Award makes available additional funding and resources to enhance the reach and impact of the Fulbright experience. Fulbright U.S. Student Program semi-finalists who express interest are eligible to apply for the Fulbright-National Geographic Award and propose additional grant funds from the National Geographic Society to expand their research and/or help bring their story to life and, if selected, join the National Geographic Explorer community.
Successful Fulbright-National Geographic applicants, in addition to receiving standard Fulbright US Study/Research Award benefits and additional grant funds, will join the National Geographic Society’s global community of Explorers and gain access to resources such as training opportunities, regional Explorer events, and dedicated staff support. Award recipients will have the chance to work with National Geographic Society staff to present their work through speaking opportunities and pitch stories for potential media coverage. The National Geographic Society expects to select up to five applicants for this award.
