The application cycle for the 2018-2019 fellowships of the Global Health will open in September 2017.

For reference, below are the step-by-step instructions for applying. The application requirements include the submission of a research proposal (in the online RedCap form).

Step 1: Determine if you are eligible for the GHES fellowship

To get started, read the eligibility criteria.

**If you are a postdoc at an institution outside of the consortium, please contact the program manager Maria Teresa Hernandez at before applying.**

Any outside candidate applying without approval will not be considered. When contacting the program manager please send the following:
- After reviewing the GHES research sites, please indicate the area of research focus and site(s) where you would like to work
- Your NIH Biosketch or resume
- Names of any GHES mentors you have contacted to secure support for your application

Step 2: Read the detailed application guidelines

Download and read the GHES 2017-2018 application guidelines. It contains detailed information on all aspects of the Global Health Equity Scholars Program. You may need to download Adobe Reader to view PDF documents.

Step 3: Read the description of the training sites

Research areas and mentors are presented for each site here.

Step 4: Contact site mentor(s)

You will need to contact the site mentors to work on a research plan/project before applying. You need the support of a GHES-affiliated mentor to be eligible. For U.S.-based applicants, we advise to first contact the U.S. site PIs who can then facilitate contact with the affiliated LMIC (Low-Middle Income Country) PI.

Step 5: Fill out the online application form and  upload all the requested documents.
