International Travel Grants Available to Support New Collaborations in Global Health

Travel grants.

Deadline: October 28, 2019

The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) is pleased to offer travel awards of up to $5000 each to Duke faculty to pursue global health research opportunities in low-, lower- middle, or upper- middle-income countries (please see World Bank list). These awards are aimed at faculty looking to explore new collaborations by conducting a site visit. [If you do not plan to visit an LMIC, please contact Kelly Deal before submitting your proposal.]

Applications will be reviewed on a biannual schedule, and should include a brief description of proposed activities (no more than 3 pages), budget, and applicant’s CV or NIH biosketch. Applications should emphasize the relationship of the proposal to DGHI’s Research Priorities, and/or Priority Partnership Locations, and the prospects for longer-term external research funding support. Budget cannot be used for conference travel, but can be provided for study team members if appropriate for the proposed activities.


Proposals must be submitted by Duke Faculty. Proposals from junior faculty and those who have never received a DGHI travel grant will be given priority in review.

Proposal due date: October 28, 2019

Funding award date: December 2, 2019

For questions, please contact Kelly Deal (

Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on October 28, 2019. Please submit a single PDF electronically to Kelly Deal (
