The Emory Global Health Institute awards Emory University students with opportunities to conduct field work abroad. The recipients of the scholars awards conduct innovative global learning projects that involve a partnership with local organizations in the country where they carry out their work.

This past summer, a multidisciplinary team conducted a project in Tanzania to enhance the curriculum for Emergency Medical Technicians within the country. Read about their experience below.
A multidisciplinary team of five Emory University students from various disciplines collaborated to design a unique curriculum to be implemented in Tanzania.  To learn more about the team and their experiences, please click below.

Global Health Student Photography Contest Awardees

EGHI hosts an annual photography contest for Emory undergraduate and graduate students, who submit photographs taken during a global health field experience in a low- or middle-income country.  The purpose of this contest is to foster cultural sensitivity by encouraging Emory students to examine the culture of the communities with whom they are working. EGHI appreciates Mr. Bob Yellowless, an Atlanta business leader, philanthropist and photographer who sponsors the contest every year.
