2024 Center for Global Health Equity University Scholar Award

Interested in global health research? 

The CGHE University Scholar awards promote multidisciplinary research focused on global health equity. Since 2001, CGHE has supported opportunities for UVA faculty mentored global engagement in collaboration with global partners that is open to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students from all Schools across Grounds. We encourage student interest in working with diverse faculty leaders and partners at collaborative global sites, locally at UVA, or virtually. We welcome proposals which align with our best practices and policies for global engagement.  Please see our FAQ for answers to common questions. Please contact us for advising, questions, or to talk about other opportunities to engage.
