Dahdaleh Global Health Graduate Scholarship Application Form

The Dahdaleh Global Health Graduate Scholarship was created to attract exceptional incoming and continuing domestic and international graduate research students to the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research. These scholarships will support graduate research and related scholarly and creative activities in line with the three themes of the Institute (planetary health, global health and humanitarianism, and global health foresighting). The scholarship will be granted annually to graduate students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement in global health research.

Based on the availability of funds and the excellence and needs of applicants, annual scholarships for individual students will range from $5,000 to $25,000 CAD. Scholarship recipients will:
• be named “Dahdaleh Graduate Global Health Scholars” at the Dahdaleh Institute;
• attend and participate in the Dahdaleh Institute’s weekly global health graduate seminars;
• present their work once in the Fall and once in the Winter term as part of the Dahdaleh Institute Current Global Health Research at the Dahdaleh Institute Seminar Series
• receive occasional invitations to participate in workshops and special events at the Dahdaleh Institute; and
• have access to the Dahdaleh Institute open workspace.

The scholarships will be granted to new or returning students based on research excellence or promise of excellence, and applications will be evaluated using the student’s past performance and potential in their graduate program.

The scholarships will be adjudicated by the Dahdaleh Global Health Research Scholarship Committee based on the following evaluation criteria: a) academic excellence; b) research potential; c) excellence of the research proposed; and d) existing and potential innovation, leadership, and initiative.

The application deadline for domestic and international applicants is 23:59 EST on the second Friday in January.
Exceptional candidates may be considered throughout the year on a case-by-case basis at the request of a Dahdaleh Institute Faculty Fellow if there are unallocated scholarship funds.
