Next application deadline for Call for Concept Papers: February 14, 2018
We are proud to issue the Call for Concept Papers for the 2018 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 support mentorship, career and/or leadership development projects for ASTMH members in the early to middle stage of mid-career 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) who will play a prominent role in developing and executing the Fellow’s two-year plan of activities
- Will provide funding of $50,000 for a period of up to two years to one recipient
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 leadership and mentoring roles in various aspects of tropical medicine.For further details, review the Call for Concept Papers here.
