Slotten Scholarship in Global Health

Slotten Scholarship in Global Health

The Slotten Scholarship in Global Health assists graduate and doctoral students who are completing essential and well-defined research that focuses on health disparities among populations and/or members of LGBT communities either in a non-U.S. setting or domestically. One to two awards for up to $2500 will be given during the academic year (includes summer).

The Slotten Scholarship in Global Health is designed to help defray the costs of conducting a MPH practicum, MS thesis or doctoral research, or a research study that focuses on health disparities among LGBTQ communities outside the U.S or those domestic LGBTQ populations that retain strong ethnic or community ties to another country and/or its culture. Under the Slotten scholarship award, health disparities among LGBTQ communities and populations include the full range of possible diseases and illness as well as the socio-cultural, legal, racial/ethnic, and/or psychosocial challenges that affect health and well-being.
