Lietman Awardees Funding Information
Congratulations on your accepted application to receive the Paul S. Lietman Global Travel Grant for Residents & Fellows. The Center for Global Health has awarded you $3,500-$5,000 to gain experience in a low-to middle-income country. Your award will be released to you through payroll. Initiating the timing release of your award is your responsibility and funding release is contingent on completion of all pre-departure requirements.
Your RER must be complete (i.e. have ALL the appropriate signature). To do so, contact the Student Program Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) 6 - 8 weeks prior to your departure date. She will then initiate the release of your funds and if everything moves according to schedule you will received your funds on the second paydate from your request.
Awardees do not need to show receipts to the Center for Global Health. The CGH expects the entire award will be used over the course of your rotation to defry travel costs, vaccinations, and living expenses. Airplane tickets can be purchased from any provider of the recipient's choosing as CGH is not restricted by the Fly America Act.
If you should need your funds earlier than the aforementioned schedule, please contact email@example.com to discuss the possibility of an accelerated release date.
