Special Programs


Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships in Public Health


The 2023-24 competition will open later in Spring 2022. Check back for updates.

The Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships are offered through a partnership between the Fulbright Program and the Fogarty International Center of the U.S. National Institutes of Health. These awards were established to promote the expansion of research in public health and clinical research in resource-limited settings.


The Fogarty International Center, NIH, will provide support to the research training site and may provide orientation for the fellows at the NIH. In addition, NIH will provide a pre-departure orientation for selected Fellows in Washington, DC.


To participate in the Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships in Public Health, the applicant must be a U.S. citizen and:


  • Be enrolled in graduate or medical school. Applicants who hold a doctorate are ineligible.
  • Have sufficient proficiency in the host language to carry out the project required.


Other basic requirements and process for applying for the Fulbright-Fogarty Program are the same as for any Fulbright U.S. Student Study/Research Grant.


Fulbright-National Geographic Award Program


The Fulbright-National Geographic Award Program, a collaboration between the Fulbright Program and National Geographic Society, offers additional funding and resources to enhance Fulbright experiences. Formerly known as the Fulbright-National Geographic Storytelling Fellowship, this program now supports projects spanning research, conservation, technology, education, and storytelling. 

Semi-finalists indicating interest in this program will receive invitations to submit additional materials through a National Geographic-hosted portal in late January/early February 2025. Successful applicants will work with National Geographic Editors to develop global narratives and foster cross-cultural understanding. Content produced will be showcased online, including on a National Geographic-hosted blog.
