PhD students involved in the Eck Institute for Global Health (EIGH) have access to first-class training, mentorship by renowned scientists, and exciting interdisciplinary opportunities, including the Notre Dame Global Health Case Competition. Graduates have gone on to lead active federal and academic research programs in the United States.


The Institute has established a graduate student fellowship program to support students enrolled in the University of Notre Dame PhD program. Outstanding graduate students from across the University of Notre Dame who have a specific interest in global health and whose research is directed to questions that impact global health are invited to apply.
