The GFTP is geared towards graduate and doctoral students and recent graduates interested in working on Hispanic health research. We also accept exceptional third and fourth year undergradaute students.


Fellows are placed throughout the United States and Latin America within government agencies and academic institutions. All HSHPS fellows work along side a mentor, an experienced researcher or senior staff member; assist with a research project as it relates to minority health issues; and participate in a series of weekly online professional development seminars.

The Student Mentorship Program for Hispanic Health research (sMPH2r) is the first formal web and team based national mentorship program focusing on Hispanic health research.


The sMPH2r is a eight month program that is geared towards undergraduate juniors; undergraduate seniors who have been accepted or have applied to graduate school; and first year graduate students in the health professions who have demonstrated commitment in research and working with the Hispanic community.  


Mentees will be matched with a team of three (3) Mentors and will contribute to an active research project that relates to a health issue affecting the Hispanic community. Teams will e-meet at least once a month and Mentees will participate in bi-monthly online lectures.
