A Science Funder Connects STEM Grad Students to Global Health—and the Gates Foundation

Hertz Staff

The Hertz-Gates Fellowships in Global Health and Development – which this summer are enabling seven Hertz Fellows to apply their scientific and engineering expertise to global problems through internships at the Gates Foundation – were featured in Inside Philanthropy.

“The fellowship is intended to provide students in STEM with hands-on experience in global health issues, and to inspire them to engage with such challenges. It’s a unique educational opportunity, but also related to a trend in science philanthropy of putting researchers from varied disciplines into new contexts, or otherwise combining different areas of study, to encourage innovative crossovers.”
