AIDS International Training and Research Program
U.C. Berkeley offers training for international scholars in AIDS-related research with support from the Fogarty International Center's AIDS International Training and Research Program (AITRP). Arthur L. Reingold, M.D., head of the Division of Epidemiology in the U.C. Berkeley School of Health, is the Project Director.
Applicants for Fogarty support complete an application form for short-term training or for degree programs. Those interested in the M.P.H. or Ph.D. degree programs at Berkeley also complete a formal admissions application through the U.C. Berkeley Graduate Division and the School of Public Health, following all instructions for international students as directed in the graduate application. Please also see our webpages for prospective applicants.
If you are applying for academic training (i.e. MPH, MS or PhD degree) through the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health, please note that the deadline for the online application for the 2012-13 academic year is December 1, 2011. Written materials must be received by November 24, 2011.
To apply for graduate study at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, you must complete both:
1) UC Berkeley Graduate Application for Admissions and Fellowship
2) The SOPHAS (Schools of Public Health Application Service) application
Please follow the instructions on both sites carefully. Submitting an incomplete application will put you at a disadvantage in the admissions review process. You will need to complete the UC Berkeley Graduate Application first, as the SOPHAS application will require the 7-digit Document ID number that you will receive in a confirmation e-mail upon completing the UC Berkeley Graduate Application.
Please visit the School of Public Health website for detailed admissions procedures. The deadline for receipt in Berkeley of all applications is December 1, 2011.
