Downs Fellowship

The Downs Fellowship supports graduate and professional Yale students who undertake health-related research primarily in low- and middle-income countries. The Downs Fellowship provides opportunities for challenging experiences abroad as Fellows create and improvise in the face of unforeseen events, acquiring new perspectives on their responsibilities and capabilities as professionals. The Downs Fellowship Committee makes awards based on merit.
