Program Overview

Fogarty has partnered with the Fulbright Program, the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government, to promote the expansion of research in public health and clinical research in resource-limited settings for both medical or graduate student fellows and postdoctoral scholars.


Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships inaugurated in 2011 with fellows in sub-Saharan Africa, and expanded to include countries in Asia and Latin America in subsequent years. The program plans to increase the number of Fellows to ten (10) for the 2016-17 academic year.
