HGHI Burke Fellowship

The Burke Global Health Fellowship program at the Harvard Global Health Institute provides funding for postdocs and Harvard junior faculty for their innovative research and curriculum development and teaching  in global health. 

There are three types of Burke Fellowships: 

  1. Burke Global Health Fellowship – Research Award 
  2. Burke Global Health Fellowship – Curriculum Development Award 
  3. (NEW) Burke Climate and Health Fellowship – Research Award

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 40 Burke Global Health Fellows since 2009.

The application for the 2023 – 2024 cohort of Burke fellows has closed. Applicants will be notified in May of their status.
