Application Deadline: July 1, 2018
Applications are now open for the Women Leaders in Global Health Challenge Contest . Through this contest, TDR, the Special Program for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, seeks to increase applications from women scientists to TDR’s mid-career clinical research and development fellowship. The contest builds upon TDR Global 3-month mobilization on gender equity in health research.
The fellowship is designed for scientists from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to work with pharmaceutical, research institute or product development partners for one year to learn about clinical research. The experience can help to build the global health leaders of tomorrow.
But women are less likely to apply for a variety of reasons. Over the past four years, 16-24% of fellowship applicants have been women and about one-quarter of all participants are women.
At least 3 semi-finalists will be supported (registration, travel, hotel, per diem) to join and present their ideas at the Women Leaders in Global Health conference in November 2018. Selected finalists will have their idea implemented to increase women’s participation in this fellowship.
How to Apply
Send your plan (in English and up to 500 words) to expand women’s participation in the fellowship. For examples, this could be a way to more widely disseminate the fellowship call in order to increase awareness, a way to make the fellowship more conducive to women with caregiving obligations, or a way to increase the number of qualified women applicants.
