ICAP’s MHIRT program provides a fully-funded opportunity for up to eight undergraduate and two graduate students each year to participate in an 11-week summer program designed to provide:
(1) exposure to landmark findings and current challenges in global health and health disparities research
(2) training in qualitative and quantitative research methods
(3) hands-on experience conducting mentored research in the Dominican Republic, Kazakhstan, Kenya, or Swaziland
(4) career and graduate admissions counseling.
The program will start with two weeks of training at ICAP in New York, followed by an eight-week international placement at one of four international training sites and culminating in a final week in New York.
Trainees must be members of underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and/or from rural and low socioeconomic groups. Undergraduate applicants must have successfully completed at least two years of coursework; most majors are eligible.
