MHIRT 2020 Applications Now Open!
The Minority Health/Global Health Disparities Research Fellowship at UC Berkeley funds international summer research experiences for qualified Berkeley students. The program provides training in infectious disease research, with a focus on diseases that disproportionately affect people in developing countries. The Global Health Disparities fellowship is funded through the Minority Health & Health Disparities International Research Training (MHIRT) initiative at the National Institutes of Health. It aims to increase diversity in biomedical and behavioral science research and support research training for students who will contribute to the elimination of health disparities that exist among disadvantaged populations in the U.S. and in developing countries.This fellowship is open to minority students who are considered under-represented in the biomedical sciences and students from medically under-served communities.
This year, we will be opening up 5-6 fellowship spots for undergraduate students. Each project is individual to the PI and the research site and has its own requirements for student fellows. For more information, please check out the research descriptions below. If you have any further questions about the project placement or descriptions, please reach out to Isabelle Charles at firstname.lastname@example.org
