Seeking Applicants for the Alan J. Magill Fellowship

$50,000 - Open Only To Low/Low-Middle Income Country ASTMH Members
 
We are proud to launch the Alan J. Magill Fellowship, created in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to honor the life, example and legacy of Alan J. Magill, MD, FASTMH, a widely recognized and respected leader in the global tropical medicine community.

In keeping with the prominent roles displayed throughout Alan Magill’s life, the Magill Fellowship:

Will provide funding of $50,000 for a period of up to two years to one recipient

Will support mentorship, career and/or leadership development projects for early- to mid-career ASTMH members in low/low-middle income countries focusing on leadership development in tropical medicine

Stipulates that the selected Magill Fellow will work closely with a mentor (ideally an ASTMH member, but not required) who will play a prominent role in developing and executing the Fellow’s two-year plan of activities

While the award will recognize achievement in tropical medicine, it is not intended to extend current research or clinical activities. Instead, it is designed to support career-broadening experiences to enhance professional development and leadership opportunities beyond those traditionally available from within the applicant’s home organization?and in so doing, equip awardees to later assume leeadership and mentoring roles in various aspects of tropical medicine.

For further details, review Call for Concept Papers here.
