Current students in the department might be interested in this opportunity:
The Washington-based Global Health Nexus project, based in the Puget Sound region, is sponsoring a competition for undergraduate teams in the state. The competition seeks to encourage students to create solutions, awareness, and innovations in global health. Teams of three or more undergraduate students propose and submit a project that addresses a global health challenge (some suggestions from experts can be found here). Prizes include $10,000, tours and visits with global health organizations, and more.
The deadline for this cycle is January 13, 2012. That will be difficult for us as we’re out of session. Luckily, extensions are possible by contacting Stephanie Grow.
