Burke Fellowship

The Burke Global Health Fellowship program at the Harvard Global Health Institute provides funding for Harvard junior faculty members from across the University for 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 ten years. Fellows are selected from across Harvard’s Schools for a vast range of global health projects.
