A panel of external reviewers will read application materials for all eligible candidates and will assign a score to each application. The GHES Principal Investigators may conduct online interviews with applicants as needed. Final selection of fellows will be made by the GHES executive committee based on candidate’s application materials, the external reviews and, where applicable, an online interview.
The first round of fellowship awards will be likely be offered in April 2023. The second round of fellowship awards will likely be offered in May-June 2023. A formal letter of award will be sent to each fellowship recipient.
Candidates who were not selected will be informed by email. The selection criteria are as follows:
- Candidate background (education, research, publications, international experience, language)
- Career statement (evidence of commitment to global health research)
- Research proposal (feasibility, context, and contribution to global health research)
- US and LMIC mentors (mentor background, research training experience, publications, commitment to mentoring the applicant)
