Thomas Francis Jr. Fellowships

The Thomas Francis, Jr., Global Health Fellowship provides financial assistance to graduate or professional students across disciplines at UW to do problem-solving practica in other cultures, usually developing countries. The endowment was established in memory of Dr. Thomas Francis, Jr., a notable physician, virologist, and epidemiologist. He was instrumental in teaching Jonas Salk the methodology of vaccine development, which ultimately led to the polio vaccine. The purpose of the Thomas Francis, Jr. Global Health Fellowship is to promote global health by providing financial assistance to graduate or professional students who would like to gain practical global health field experience in international and/or underserved community settings.  Dr. Thomas Francis, Jr. taught Dr. Jonas Salk the methodology of vaccine development, and designed and directed the Salk polio vaccine clinical trials.

This is an ongoing project.
