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.


Applicants must be U.S. Citizens. By the start of the program year, fellows must be:

  • An MD (and other professional degrees) student who has completed their 3rd year or
  • A Ph.D. candidate who has completed their Master’s level requirements (i.e., post-qualifying exam).
