Downs Fellowship

Each year the Downs International Health Student Travel Fellowship program supports graduate and professional Yale students who undertake health-related research primarily in low- and middle-income countries. Downs Fellows carry out research in the context of their host countries’ culture, health problems and resources. The Fellowship provides funds for transportation to and from overseas project sites, cost of visas, site-specific drugs, immunizations, evacuation insurance and a modest stipend. Although students may initiate projects, Yale faculty members provide intellectual support, practical assistance and links with host-country sponsors who serve as mentors during the Fellows time abroad.

Global Health Field Experience Awards

Global Health at Yale invites applications each year to the Global Health Field Experience Awards to support scholarly endeavors for Yale students (undergraduates and graduates) working in the field of global health.

The Program seeks to support students committed to global health as they take their first steps toward becoming leaders in the field. Proposed projects should be strongly connected to the student’s career development in terms of strengthening relevant skills and gaining an understanding of how different players and approaches contribute to improving health worldwide. Student projects may be in a variety of areas, such as research, practice, advocacy, or policy and management.
