Yusuf Hamied Fellowships Program

We partner with the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University on an initiative to advance science and improve public health outcomes in India, enabled by a generous gift from the distinguished philanthropist, Dr. Yusuf Hamied. Initiated in 2018, the Yusuf Hamied Fellowship is aimed towards strengthening public health research in India with a focus on Health and Environment, Access to Treatment, and Population and Family Health. The Yusuf Hamied Fellowships are awarded annually for three research residencies in India to public health faculty at the Mailman School and to three faculty members in Indian educational institutions for short-term residencies at the Mailman School. Priority will be given to fellows interested in exploring and building research collaborations that are focused on innovative public health questions that address critical health challenges in India. The Fellowship promotes faculty exchange, and focuses on building research collaborations and mutual learning. In its final year, the Fellowship has been awarded to projects focusing on menstrual health, environmental health, aging, mental health, and public health systems in India.
