Global Health Spark Awards

The Global Health Spark Award was created to support YIGH-affiliated faculty as they identify, coordinate, and/or prepare for global health work. Spark Awards are intended to “spark” a larger scope of work, for example, preparation and submission of a proposal for a larger grant opportunity or catalyzing a sustainable scope of work that contributes to the career development of YIGH-affiliated faculty. YIGH will accept one application per person per review cycle.

Special Funding for Research or Work In or Related to Pakistan
In fall 2023, YIGH will also fund up to 3 Spark Awards to YIGH-affiliated faculty for proposals to nurture research or work based in or related to Pakistan.
