The 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. Two awards of up to $40,000 each will be awarded to mature proposals that have a clear linkage to a larger outside funding opportunity. In addition, two awards of up to $10,000 each will also be awarded to proposals that are initiating new work. Completed applications can be sent to Mike Skonieczny, Deputy Director.
