As a part of Innovations for Youth’s and The Center for Global Public Health’s missions to support experiential learning for UC Berkeley graduate students interested in adolescent health and wellbeing, we have established a graduate student fellowship. Fellowships in the amount of $2,500-$5,000 will be awarded to 2-3 qualified students, selected via a competitive evaluation, to support study-related travel and activities for 2-3 months in the summer of 2017 (exceptions for projects with longer timelines or timelines outside of the summer will also be considered).
The fellowship project must be focused on adolescent (ages: 10-24 years) health and wellbeing in a low-resource domestic, or international setting. Sites may include long-term field study sites of UC Berkeley faculty, or community-based organizations unaffiliated with UC Berkeley. The student’s primary supervisor can be a field supervisor or community based organization member, but each student must also have a faculty referral form filled out by a UC Berkeley faculty member. I4Y and CGPH welcomes student proposals with a focus on adolescent health and wellbeing from any discipline. Proposals for the 2017 fellowship cycle are due February 1, 2017.
