The Center for Global Health/Dean’s Global Resident Award is generously supported by the Office of the Associate Dean for International Programs, and is intended to encourage and support residents in all sub-specialties to seek experiences in global health.  Residents interested in international health or research experiences are encouraged to explore our existing or potential collaborations. 


Funding for global health rotations may come from different sources depending on your Department.  Residents from Departments without departmental funds will be the primary recipients of the “Dean’s Global Resident Award” and will apply through the Center for Global Health.  These grants will primarily support travel.  Residents from Departments with departmental funding will need to contact their Department administration for travel reimbursement and procedures.


Dean’s Global Resident Award amounts vary by year depending on the number of applicants.   Applications are due by September 1 of the academic year in which travel will occur.  Please be aware that this date may fall before or after travel occurs.  Notification of award will occur by October 1 of the academic year in which travel will occur.  Reimbursement will only occur upon return from travel and upon submission of receipts for travel-related expenses. 


 Please call 434.243.6383 with any questions.
