 2019-20 Burke Global Health Fellowship

For junior faculty at Harvard. Candidates must hold a junior faculty appointment at Harvard University (ie: Assistant or Associate Professor, Instructor, etc.).  Faculty working in disciplines outside of health and life sciences are encouraged to apply so long as the work falls within global health.

 Made possible through the generous support of Harvard alumna Katherine States Burke, AB’79, and her husband, T. Robert Burke, the fellowship was created to help launch and advance the careers of promising junior faculty in global health – which in almost 10 years, has done so for over 30 Harvard faculty!  The Burke Global Health Fellowship offers two types of funding: research awards up to $75,000 and curriculum development and teaching awards up to $25,000.


Harvard University junior faculty have through February 15, 2019 to submit their Letter of Intent (LoI).  Following an intense review period in spring 2019, applicants will be notified if their LoI has been accepted and will be asked to submit a full proposal.  If then awarded, Fellows will be provided their allotted funding from July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020.  More information on eligibility and the application process can be found here.
