The Global Health Program encourages outstanding Global Health students to go abroad when completing the field experience requirement. Current Global Health Majors and minors may now apply for up to $500.00 from the Global Health Program to support field experience travel!
Applicants must be current UC San Diego Global Health students at the time of the program abroad, proof that the student has been accepted to the program must be included with the application, and students must apply for, and be approved for, funding before participating in the field experience abroad.
Please complete the funding request form here.
*Please note that the scholarship will be awarded via direct deposit to your UCSD student account. Once the award has posted onto the account it will first be applied towards the balance due to the university if any and only the difference will be issued to the student in a form of a refund. The Office of Student Financial Solutions (SFS) will email the student once this has occurred to include a general timeline as to when to expect the funds. If the student is not enrolled in direct deposit (SFS) will mail a paper check to the address they have on file. (Scholarship/Stipend refunds cannot be picked up) For questions regarding refunds or address on file students may contact SFS at (858) 822-4727.
Requirements for students receiving funding:
