Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowship in Public Health
  • The Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships in Public Health 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.
  • Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships carry the same benefits as the traditional Fulbright Study/Research grants to the host country. The Fogarty International Center, NIH, will provide support to the research training site and may provide orientation for the fellows at the NIH.
  • The program is designed for candidates who are currently enrolled in medical school or in a graduate-level program and who are interested in global health. The basic requirements and process for applying for the Fulbright-Fogarty Program are the same as for any Fulbright U.S. Student Study/Research Grant.
  • For the 2021-2022 award cycle, Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships will be offered in the following countries: Vietnam, Nepal (sites forthcoming), Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Uganda, Jamaica, and Peru.
  • To register for an upcoming webinar about this Fellowship, please see below.

Pursuant to the President’s July 14, 2020 Executive Order on Hong Kong Normalization, the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) will not operate the Fulbright program in the People’s Republic of China, including Hong Kong and Macau, in the current (2020-2021) academic year or offer awards to those locations for the upcoming (2021-2022) program cycle.

For the 2021-2022 grant cycle, country award descriptions will be updated to reflect this change. All students with applications currently in progress or submitted have been alerted that applications to China, Hong Kong, and Macau are no longer being accepted. Applicants are being encouraged to explore other eligible countries.
