Program Overview

The HBNU Fogarty Global Health Fellowship connects high-potential global health researchers with innovative, mentored research opportunities designed to improve the health of low-resource populations around the world. Sponsored by the Fogarty International Center (FIC) and several collaborating Institutes and Centers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the HBNU program brings together a consortium that includes Harvard University, Boston University, Northwestern University, and University of New Mexico, in collaboration with 18 partner institutions in low-and-middle-income countries (LMICs).

The HBNU Fogarty Global Health Training Program offers 12-month mentored research fellowships in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) designed to address some of the world’s most pressing health challenges. The fellowship is available to U.S. pre- and post-doctoral students, as well as postdoctoral fellows from LMICs.

HBNU Fogarty Fellowship projects must be hosted by one of eighteen training sites across fourteen countries in Africa, Asia, and South America available through the Harvard-BU-Northwestern-UNM Consortium.
