Duke Global Health Institute -- International Travel Grants (Duke Internal Funding -- For Duke Faculty Only)

Funding Agency:
Duke University

The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) is pleased to offer travel awards of up to $5000 each to Duke faculty to pursue global health research opportunities in low-, lowermiddle, or upper- middle-income countries (please see World Bank list). These awards are aimed at faculty looking to explore new collaborations by conducting a site visit. [If you do not plan to visit an LMIC, please contact Kelly Deal before submitting your proposal.] Applications will be reviewed on a biannual schedule, and should include a brief description of proposed activities (no more than 3 pages), budget, and applicant’s CV or NIH biosketch. Applications should emphasize the relationship of the proposal to DGHI’s Research Priorities, and/or Priority Partnership Locations, and the prospects for longer-term external research funding support. Budget cannot be used for conference travel, but can be provided for study team members if appropriate for the proposed activities.

Deadline: Apr. 8, 2019; Oct. 28, 2019

For questions, please contact Kelly Deal (Kelly.deal@duke.edu).
