FIC Stigma Research Training Institute Travel Scholarships

Deadline: February 10, 2020

Fogarty International Center has announced a call for applications for the Stigma Research Training Travel Scholarship and the deadline to submit an application is February 10, 2020. Please see the full announcement below:

CRDF Global is requesting applications on behalf of Fogarty International Center for institute trainees interested in the Stigma Research Training Travel Scholarship . Fogarty’s Center for Global Health Studies is hosting a short-term training to promote transdisciplinary and novel health-related stigma research methods to a cohort of researchers from diverse fields to strengthen research capacity in this area. These awards are intended to support travel, including airfare accommodation and per diem, to subsidize institute trainees attendance. FIC expects to accept up to 40 applications. Applicants from U.S. and low- and middle-income country institutions/organizations are encouraged to apply.



All proposals must meet each of the following eligibility criteria:

  • Candidates should be early- to mid-career investigators with a minimum of 3 years of experience conducting research on a topic where stigma is a relevant factor. This can include research on stigma itself or on stigmatized health conditions or populations. Research experience may be demonstrated through peer-reviewed publications, research funding, and/or contributions to relevant research projects.
  • Applicants must be affiliated with a U.S. or Low- and Middle-Income (LMIC²) institution (LMIC is defined by the World Bank here) at the time of application, and return to their home institution after the Training Institute to conduct research and/or train researchers in stigma research methods. Applicants do not have to be of any given nationality or residency. Applicants from LMIC institutions are strongly encouraged to apply.
  • The ideal candidate will have strong interest in the transdisciplinary science of health-related stigma research and will use the training to inform research on key public health problems in resource-limited settings. Commitment to conducting cross-cutting health-related stigma research (i.e. stigma research that cuts across health conditions and/or populations) is encouraged but not required.

All applications must be submitted electronically through CRDF Global’s Electronic Proposal Submission (EPS) website, no later than February 10th, 2020 (23:59) U.S. Standard Time (EST).
