NIH/Fogarty Clinical Research Training Scholars and Fellows Program
The Fogarty International Center in collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities, the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), and the National Institute of Child Health and Child Development (NICHD) is offering a one-year clinical research training experience for graduate level U.S. students in the health professions. This is an opportunity for highly motivated individuals to experience mentored research training at top-ranked NIH-funded research centers in developing countries. If you are accepted for a scholarship, then Africa, Asia and the Americas are regions of the world that you may find yourself experiencing.
This program is designed primarily for students meeting all these qualifications:
