CGEI Interprofessional Global Grant Program
Student Interprofessional Global Grants
The student application process for the 2020 summer interprofessional global health grant program will open October 15th with the global grant programs announcement and close with the applicaton deadline of November 15th, 2019.
The hallmark program of the Center for Global Education Initiatives (CGEI) is our Interprofessional Global Grant program. Here's how it works - UMB faculty from any school on campus apply for CGEI grant funds to create a project for an interprofessional group of students. These projects range from research to capacity building to training. They are usually 2-4 week projects in an established research site overseas mostly in the summer but some take place in early January.
Here's how to apply:
- Look at past projects to get an idea of our innovative global projects. Read about past projects
- Look at upcoming projects.
- Check the applications deadline for the project you are interested in.
- Apply here!
Interprofessional Global Grant Application Process
Applicants must be current and continuing UMB students. Students may choose to apply for more than one faculty-led project but will only be selected to participate in one project. Whether a student receives academic credit for the experience will be determined by the student’s individual school and the faculty member leading the project. Students should have any credit requirements determined and documented before beginning the project.
Please thoroughly read the application instructions and criteria that will be used by the review committee.
Interprofessional Global Grant Financial/Funding Details
The amount of student grants varies by project. Usually grants cover the round-trip coach airfare from the Baltimore/D.C. area to the host country. Additional expenses such as accommodations, visa fees, in-country transportation, meals, and incidentals will be the responsibility of the student, unless otherwise specified in the project description. Fees for airline cancellation or schedule changes made for discretionary reasons after the ticket is purchased also are the responsibility of the student.
