Program Overview

The current program supports six U.S. university consortia to provide one (1)-year mentored global health research training opportunities to predoctoral/pre-professional and postdoctoral/post-professional trainees from the U.S. and low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) at established research institutions and project sites in LMICs.

The new program, Launching Future Leaders in Global Health (LAUNCH) Research Training Program (RFA-TW-21-004), builds on the successes and experiences of the Fogarty Global Health Training Program (RFA-TW-16-002) (2017-2022). This program will continue to support one (1)-year mentored research training in global health at established biomedical and health research institutions and project sites in LMICs. Opportunities will be provided to predoctoral and pre-professional trainees from the U.S. and postdoctoral and post-professional trainees from the U.S. and LMICs.
