About the Ambassadors Brigade Fellowship

The purpose of the CenHealth Ambassadors Brigade Fellowship is to conduct and promote student/faculty national and international research on finding solutions to health disparities that will contribute to closing gaps in vulnerable populations achieving health equity throughout the Americas (North America, South America, Central America and the Caribbean).

CenHealth Ambassadors Brigade Fellows are USC KSOM graduate level students that were competitively selected to conduct their proposed research project. Ambassador Brigade Fellows conduct research individually or with a small team of students on health equity with a USC faculty mentor and an international or national partner/supervisor for a period of no less than 6 weeks. Ambassadors Brigade Fellows may conduct original research, clinical practice, or a practicum with research components, or work on a faculty research or site-specific research projects that aim at the correction of health disparities.
