2017 Lietman Extension Applications

Recipients of the Paul S. Lietman Travel Grant are eligible to apply for an extension of their award period and request additional funding. This funding is intended to support continued work in a low- or middle-income country (LMIC) for housestaff who want to establish careers in global health. You do not have to work in the same country, but you must justify how the new work is directly related to the work done under the original award.

Eligibility: You are eligible to apply if you received a Lietman award and completed your return requirements. At the time of application for the extension, you must be a full-time fellow in any GME program at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. 

Awards will range from $1,500-3,000. Awards cannot be used for travel that occurred before the award date.

For more information, see the Extension application instructions.
