The KUSKAYA project presented jointly by the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in Lima, Peru and the University of Washington in Seattle, was one of five projects in 2013 that received funding from the Fogarty International Center to establish a training program and Center for Innovation in Global Health to employ an interdisciplinary approach for understanding complex health problems, emphasizing leadership, business models, policy analysis and implementation science. KUSKAYA means "working together" in Quechua, a Peruvian native language.
KUSKAYA is offering fellowships to six post-doctorate level terminal degree (Master’s or PhD) students from diverse disciplines – three University of Washington students and three Peruvians – who are interested in developing innovative products, processes and policies to improve public health and global health in interdisciplinary, bi-national research teams in Lima, Peru. The application deadline is February 17, 2014.
