The intent of the Robert E. Shope International Fellowship in Infectious Diseases is to provide international training opportunities in arbovirology and emerging diseases for those with an M.D., D.V.M., Ph.D. or related doctoral degree. The award will provide $25,000 to help defray travel costs, living expenses and/or research abroad. The recipient will be required to prepare a report describing his or her experiences, with the potential to be invited to make a presentation at the society’s annual meeting.
ELIGIBILITY: Full-time post-doctoral fellows (Ph.D., D.V.M., M.D. degrees or the equivalent) with positions at North American institutions who study any tropical infectious disease in arbovirology and/or emerging tropical infectious diseases. Co-mentors must be identified both at a North American institution and at an international institution or site. Sponsoring North American institutions are responsible for assuring that the proposed studies are compliant with contemporary regulations, including those related to human subjects and pathogens. A one-page research plan should be submitted. Applicants should be sponsored by an ASTMH member.
