The Global Health Studies Multidisciplinary Academic Program is pleased to announce its newest cohort of Global Health Scholars.

Sixteen undergraduate students in Yale College were selected by competitive application to participate in a multidisciplinary academic program of coursework, experiential learning, visiting lectures, and community-building activities to study and experience global health.
