Global Established Multidisciplinary Sites (GEMS)

The 2016 GEMS application cycle is now open!

Interested faculty teams should read the complete call for applications and submit an application by December 15, 2016. 

About the GEMS:

The aim of the Global Established Multidisciplinary Sites (GEMS) is to encourage faculty and students from across the Johns Hopkins University to work together to solve global health problems. Faculty mentors working on an international project that requires a multidisciplinary approach are encouraged to apply to develop a site. 

During 2015, the Center for Global Health (CGH) has developed 3 new Global Established Multidisciplinary Sites (GEMS) as part of the Global Health Signature Initiative. This program solicited applications from interdisciplinary teams of Hopkins faculty to establish research sites overseas. Three faculty teams were awarded $30,000 each to conduct multidisciplinary research in Bangladesh, India, and South Africa. In 2016 we re-funded two of the original sites and added sites in Peru, Haiti, and Mali. 

Sites are expected to host and mentor 3-5 students from 3 or more different disciplines to collaborate and develop a solution to the proposed problem. The Center for Global Health will provide financial support for coordination and for student travel. The Center will also be involved in project planning and execution. Each site is eligible to receive up to $10,000 in coordination costs and to up to $20,000 to distribute to students traveling to GEMS. Funding is for one year of support.
