For the 2010 application to Global Opportunities Health Fellowships: http://globalhealth.washington.edu/docs/GO_HEALTH_APPLICATION%202010.pdf
The purpose of the GO Health Fellowship is to provide financial assistance to a graduate

may gain valuable international fieldwork experience in global health. The funds have been
generously provided by donors committed to the education of global health professionals from
diverse disciplinary backgrounds.
The Fellowship of up to $4,000 (USD) can be used to support student travel costs, including
room and board, travel health preparation, travel insurance and/or supplies for a particular
global health project. The GO Health Fellowship cannot be used to cover tuition costs, school
supplies, conference attendance or other non-project related expenses. Funds can be used for
experiences taking place anytime from Summer quarter 2010 up to, and including Winter
