2022 Travel Award FAQs

Q: What is the minimum amount of time needed to spend on the field placement? 
A: You must spend a minimum of 8-10 weeks working with your field placement. A minimum of 6 weeks is required to be in-country, but we recommend more time in country. Your GHEFP experience can last as long as your schedule allows before graduation. 

Q: By when must the field placement be completed? 
A: Field placements must be completed by your date of graduation.

Q: Are there consequences for accepting the award and not traveling? 
A: We are optimistic that all students will travel this year and will release the $3,500 in one lump sum. If you students are unable to travel due to 1) JHU reinstating COVID-19 travel restrictions for students, 2) the country you are traveling to closes its borders due to COVID-19, or 3) JHU does not allow you to travel to your specific placement country due to a change in security, the student may participate in the GHEFP remotely under the remote work contingency plans, but will be required to return $1,500 of the initial award. 

The reasons listed above are the only reasons CGH will approve the remote option. If you do not travel due to any other reason, you will be required to return the full award amount, and you will not be eligible to participate remotely.  The GHEFP Program Officer (Meagan) will be able to help students understand their eligibility for remote contingency plans should the need arise.  

Q: Some countries will continue requiring international travelers to be quarantined. Is it ok for students to still travel? 
A: Yes- as long as Hopkins travel policy allows AND it is safe for the student to quarantine upon arrival, AND the student is able to spend a minimum of 6 weeks at the field placement (post-quarantine), then students can still travel. 

Q: Where are the forms located? 
A: All forms and templates can be found here: http://hopkinsglobalhealth.org/funding-opportunities/student-and-trainee-grants/recipient-forms/

Q: For the flight tickets, does the departure place of the tickets need to be from the US?
A: No- you can travel from anywhere as your place of departure. 

Q: What type of documentation/receipts do we need to keep and later submit to show how funds were spent (e.g. ticket stubs, lodging)?
A: If you complete your full placement, you do not need to submit receipts at the end, however, it is a good idea to keep track of your expenditures for your personal planning and budget tracking. However, if you had to leave your placement early without completing the full 6-week minimum, you will be responsible to show us what you have spent so we can determine what amount will need to be returned) 

Q: What are acceptable ways to spend the travel portion of the grant? 
A: Anything related to travel and living expenses for your field placement are acceptable ways. Examples of this are airfare, lodging, ground transportation, food, vaccinations, visas, etc. If you have a questionable expense, feel free to send an email or Slack message to ask. 

Q: Do international students need to apply for CPT (Curricular Practical Training)? 
A: No- CPT is for training placements in the United States. https://ois.jhu.edu/Immigration_and_Visas/F1_Student/F-1_Training_and_Employment/Curricular_Practical_Training/
