Spring 2009 Framework Program in Global Health award winners announced

The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health recently announced their Framework Program in Global Health award winners for the spring of 2009. Nine current Hopkins students were selected to receive the awards, which range in value from $3,000 to $5,000. The objective of the Framework Program in Global Health is to enhance the recruitment of students into global health research and practice careers by providing them the means to work with faculty mentors and to travel overseas to gain valuable experience. All students submitted a research project proposal based in an international location to be considered for the award.

Consistent with the program's goal to support students in a wide range of disciplines necessary to respond to today's global health challenges, this group of eleven awardees features students pursuing degrees in a variety of fields.
