This field experience opportunity increases exposure to other cultures and understanding and productively intervening in processes of health, illness, and healing across the globe. Funds proposed in the US should have a clear global health focus.
Funding up to $2,000/person to assist current students with domestic and/or international field experience expenses, available as stipends for summer travel, and reimbursement for travel during the academic year. Expenses from past travel may be reimbursed with these funds as long as the trip took place in 2018. Awardees will be asked to present their research poster/report at a global health conference such as the Horizons of Global Health Research Symposium and Field Experience Expo, Undergraduate Research Conference, Drinks and Dissertations: a graduate research symposium, or other similar forum appropriate to class level.
