A Successful GHES Applicant
Exploring LMIC Institutions and Obtaining Endorsement
A prospective applicant should dedicate at least six weeks to prepare an application. A competitive applicant will spend considerable time in contact with potential US and LMIC mentors to secure a letter of commitment. These applicants must also obtain endorsements of researchers (mentor principal investigators) already affiliated with the GHES in order to apply.
The GHES has a network of more than 100 principal investigators who can serve as a mentor in an application. To obtain endorsement, please communicate directly with principal investigators at the affiliated US campus and the LMIC institution you are considering. The following steps will guide you on how to identify someone who can potentially endorse and commit to being a mentor in your fellowship.
