The first Student Global Travel Grant recipients have been announced. These grants partially support international travel expenses for masters or doctoral students enrolled in one of the six health science schools, the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, or the School of Law at the University of Pittsburgh who wish to conduct research in an international setting. The research project must address a global health issue, and preference was given to projects conducted in a developing country or resource-poor setting. This grant program is sponsored by Donald S. Burke, MD, associate vice chancellor for global health, health sciences, and dean of GSPH.
Pictured above with Dean Burke are Niketa Williams, left, and April Carmen. Williams will use her grant to travel to Lusaka, Zambia, to evaluate the legacy of women\'s participation in a microbicide trial. Carmen will participate in the Children\'s Study in Hyderabad, India.
