The Office of Global Programs has announced a new summer global health research abroad opportunity in partnership with the Columbia University Medical Center, to be offered in summer 2016.
IFAP Global Health Research for Undergraduates will enable undergraduate students with interests in global health to join graduate student teams in Haiti or at two different sites in the Dominican Republic to carry out summer research projects in association with local healthcare organizations. Depending on their interests and abilities, students will be assigned to a project at one of the aforementioned sites, with two undergraduate students in total at each site.
Students will also have the opportunity to enroll in two credit-bearing global health courses at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons (P&S) and to pursue an independent study based on their summer research project with a faculty mentor from P&S upon their return to campus in the fall.
Total costs include excursions and placement fees as well as airfare and accommodation. The Office of Global Programs works with applicants to research and guide applications for additional fellowships to support all costs.
Applications are due Friday, December 4. An info session will be held on Thursday, November 19 at 5:10 p.m., in 603 Hamilton Hall.
