Letters of Support
Fellows should have the support of at least one program‐affiliated faculty mentor from one of the four participating consortium institutions (Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, Boston University School of Public Health, Northwestern University, University of New Mexico). Applicants must have communicated with their proposed faculty mentor(s) to obtain their endorsement of the application. Accordingly, one of the candidate’s letters of support must be from the faculty member at the consortium institution who has agreed to serve as the applicant’s primary research mentor. U.S. Mentors listed here
Fellows must also have the support of at least one mentor from their proposed international site that is willing to serve as the fellow’s international site mentor. A letter of support from this international site faculty mentor is also strongly recommended. However, in the case of doctoral and professional student applicants who have not yet established this relationship, a letter of support from the affiliated international site is not required at the time of application but will be required before a funding decision can be made. If a letter of support is not being submitted from the affiliated international site at the time of application, the applicant’s second letter of support should come from someone who knows the applicant well and can address his or her research accomplishments, research potential, and likelihood of a successful research career in global health research.
Signed letters of reference should be e‐mailed directly to Assistant Director Patricie Niyitegeka at firstname.lastname@example.org. Letters of reference must be received by January 1st, 2018.
