Global Health Special Funding

Global Health Special Funding


The Program in Global Health Studies encourages all students to get involved with global health and international initiatives both in and outside the classroom. In hopes of facilitating student involvement with global health and internationally-minded organizations, conferences, events, speakers, and initiatives, the Program in Global Health Studies offers limited financial support. 

Funding will be awarded on both an individual and student group basis, and while declared Global Health Studies majors and minors have priority, all undergraduate students are eligible to apply. We welcome applications to support presenting at and attending global health-focused conferences and events, as well as hosting events and building new global health projects and initiatives on campus.
