The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Announces New Grant Competition:
2016 International Clinical Research Fellowship
The Doris Duke International Clinical Research Fellowship (ICRF) program provides
fellowships for U.S.-based medical students to take a year out from school to conduct
mentored clinical research in developing countries.
Fellows receive a stipend, health insurance, and financial support to attend a year-end
meeting as well as supplementary funds for research and training.
In keeping with the wishes expressed in Doris Duke's will, experiments that use animals or
primary tissues derived from animals will not be supported by this program.
ICRF is administered through six U.S. medical schools with established programs in global
health research. Each school is responsible for overseeing the selection of applicants and
providing the mentored research experience. Each institution will offer three fellowships per
year that begin in the summer of 2016.

Duke University School of Medicine and Duke Global Health Institute
Harvard Medical School
University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine
