The Harvard Global Health Institute (HGHI) and the Brazil Office of the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies have partnered to offer students the opportunity to conduct cutting-edge global health research in Brazil. Throughout the summer, students work with a Harvard faculty member or affiliate on their research projects and have a local mentor who supervises their daily work.
Students in I-SURGH receive a stipend to cover travel costs to and from their site, living expenses, and local transportation. Unfortunately HGHI cannot cover the summer savings requirement for I-SURGH students who are on financial aid. While all returning Harvard College undergraduates are eligible to apply, preference is given to sophomores and juniors. The deadline to apply is: Wednesday, January 31st, 2018 at midnight. Please see the Application Instructions for further details.
In 2018, three summer internship opportunities will be offered in Brazil via the HGHI International Summer Undergraduate Research in Global Health (i-SURGH):
- Laboratory of Immunopathology at the René Rachou Research Institute - Fiocruz Minas Foundation, Belo Horizonte, Brazil
- WeCancer, São Paulo, Brazil
- Butantan Institute, São Paulo, Brazil
