EGHI established the David J. Sencer Disease Eradication and Control Field Scholars Award to honor the work of Dr. David Sencer, former head of the CDC and a global health leader whose efforts contributed greatly to the eradication of smallpox.
Recipients of the fellowship will be Emory students and EGHI Global Health Field Scholars conducting projects that focus on the control or eradication of both infectious and chronic diseases. Sencer Field Scholar recipients may be either Individual Field Scholars or members of a Multidisciplinary Field Scholar Team. Sencer Field Scholars will receive the same monetary support that other field scholars receive.
Emory students interested in this fellowship opportunity should apply through EGHI's Field Scholars Awards Program. The topic of students' proposed project will determine whether or not Field Scholars are designated Sencer Field Scholars.
