To participate in our Global Health Program it is the resident’s responsibility to self-fund their trip.  You are welcome to research and apply to outside resources for funding as well.  Currently we have ten Global Health stipend ($1,000 per stipend) to award this academic year (July 2018 through June 2019).  Applications are now being accepted until December 19th, 2018, and the ten finalist will be announced by December 31, 2018.  Stipend winners are based on the merit of their application, and must complete all requirements listed above.   The stipend will not be awarded until all the requirements are met within this academic year.  If a finalist fails to meet all the requirements within this academic year the stipend will be awarded to a runner-up applicant.   Good luck!
