Sparkman Scholars are part of a recognized network of UAB faculty working in the areas of global health and development. This network aims to facilitate developing new collaborations with colleagues across campus, as well as making linkages with students interested in global health and development. Sparkman Scholars will have the opportunity to serve as mentors to students from among a select group of students who will apply to become Sparkman Fellows through a competitive process. Faculty members in the field of global health and development who would like to expand their work may apply for the Sparkman Scholar designation through the application below. We hope many of you will join us in this exciting initiative!
