The UC Global Health Institute will award 20 UC Master’s students from historically excluded and/or disadvantaged backgrounds $5000 stipends for their capstone projects/research projects that are related to local or global health. UC Global Health Institute is interested in designing this program specifically for Masters-level students because they recognize that funding opportunities for these students are even more limited and acknowledge that tuition rates are high. There is data to support that graduates of Master’s degrees do not necessarily secure jobs with compensation that is significantly higher than those with Bachelor’s degrees. This opportunity will support the careers of students who are currently in the global health pathway and through this program will help expand their networks/connections in efforts to contribute to the success of their careers.
