The Community for Global Health Equity aims to provide opportunities for students from across the University to travel and contribute to global health research and knowledge. International field work awards can cover up to $2,500 or the cost of travel and per-diem.
The university is strongly recommending that UB faculty, staff and students avoid traveling to regions that are being impacted by the Coronavirus. Until further notice, the Community for Global Health Equity is suspending funding for student and faculty travel.
Application: Eligible candidates are all UB students. Prior international experience is not a prerequisite for application. Preference is for proposed projects in collaboration with the global work of a faculty member.
Application to the program will be competitive and will be based on the submission of a scope of work, letter of interest, letter of recommendation from a faculty member, and resume.
Award: International field work awards cover up to $2,500 covering project related costs including airfare, lodging, visas, immunizations, and per diem. Before traveling all students must complete all travel forms and adhere to the CGHE and their School’s travel policies.
Various steps to the international field work process may take several months to complete.
We expect all students to submit application materials at least 2-3 months in advance of requested travel.
