CGH Funding Opportunities for UVa Students

The Center for Global Health offers an array of scholar programs designed to support UVa students from diverse disciplines who conduct independent research related to global health.

Current programs are available to University of Virginia students from all disciplines and in all schools across Grounds. Award programs encourage student and faculty partnership, peer mentoring, and engagement with multiple institutions, NGOs, and service organizations. Past CGH Scholars have included students from the College of Arts and Sciences and the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, Nursing and Commerce.

We encourage all students to consider pursuing independent inquiry which incorporates research, service, and academics.
