The fellowship includes mentorship, subject matter sensitization, training, access to MSF projects and experts, and reporting costs for field visits.

Interested candidates may submit reporting proposals on a range of themes across public health and humanitarian aid. Applicants can apply under two grant categories: General Grant or MSF-DNDi Grant on Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs).

Fellows will receive awards between INR50,000 to INR2,00,000. They are expected to publish their work before the end of 2024.

The application deadline is July 14.
