Attention Juniors: Health Scholars Program

Thursday, Oct 24, 2019

Princeton’s prestigious Health Scholars Program provides outstanding students with funding for travel and research to pursue global health-related internships and senior thesis research, plus personalized faculty support and a collegial community. The program is open to students from all departments.  Students who anticipate studying abroad in the future are welcome to apply.

Up to six juniors are selected each year as Health Scholars through an application and interview process that focuses on academic performance and on plans for work and research on global health issues. Health Scholars are guaranteed full financial support for health-related internships or independent research on global health in the summer before the senior year. 
 
Health Scholars receive special guidance from Princeton faculty and researchers, attend periodic dinner sessions with leading academics and practitioners, and interact with and learn from global health-minded students from a range of disciplines.  They can be offered special support for attending or presenting at global health conferences, and may have special opportunities to interact with distinguished campus visitors.
