Hecht Global Health Faculty Network AwardThe Hecht Global Health Faculty Network Award is designed to promote new research and programs in global health at Yale. Funded activities should be critical to the initiation of new work by the applying faculty members in international settings, such as efforts to strengthen partnerships with developing country-based institutions, collect primary data, and develop strategies and policies for improving health and health care in resource-poor settings. The Award is endowed in the Yale School of Public Health and matched by the Yale Institute for Global Health and the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale. Awardees are selected by a faculty committee from the Schools of Public Health, Medicine, and Nursing. Two awards of up to $50,000 each will be awarded to proposals that include faculty from at least two schools in the health sciences. In addition, two awards of up to $50,000 each will also be awarded to proposals that include faculty from the health sciences and at least one full-time ladder faculty member in the humanities or social sciences with a primary appointment in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Completed applications can be sent to Mike Skonieczny, Deputy Director.
