Burke Global Health Fellowship


The Burke Global Health Fellowship program at Harvard Global Health Institute provides funding for Harvard junior faculty members from across the University to support innovative research, and curriculum development and teaching (particularly at the undergraduate level) in global health. The Fellowships are made possible through the generous support of Harvard alumna Katherine States Burke, AB’79, and her husband, T. Robert Burke who established the Burke Fund to help launch and advance the careers of promising junior faculty in global health.

Through the Burkes' generosity, HGHI has funded over 30 Burke Global Health Fellows in 10 years. Fellows are selected from across Harvard's Schools for a vast range of global health projects.

The Burke Fellowship Application is now CLOSED.  Applicants will be notified in Spring 2020 if they are invited to proceed to stage 2, submission of a full proposal.
