Global REACH is a primary supporter of UMMS student educational experiences overseas, but other potential funding opportunities can be found through a number of on-campus programs.
Minority Health and Health Disparities International Research Training (MHIRT) Program: Offered through the University’s Human Growth and Development Office, MHIRT was established to: (a) increase the representation of socially or economically disadvantaged groups who have been historically underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral careers; and (b) support the research training of students who will most likely contribute to the elimination of health disparities that exist among disadvantaged populations in the US.
William Davidson Foundation Global Impact Internships: An important part of WDI’s mission is to provide opportunities and support for student international projects at the Ross School of Business as well as the other schools and colleges at the University of Michigan.
Rackham International Research Awards: The U-M Rackham Graduate School offers awards to support doctoral and master’s students conducting degree-related research outside the US. (Applicants must be enrolled in a Rackham program of study such as the medical sciences MD/PhD program.)
Fogarty Global Health Fellowships: UMMS is a member of the Northern Pacific Global Health Research Fellows Training Consortium, which offers a funded, 12-month research training program abroad for doctoral students and post-doctoral trainees in the health professions.
