Mekong Policy Fellowships and Grants for civil society organisations through Mekong Connections

Extension of the application deadline for Health Security Fellowships and Civil Society Grants through Mekong Connections Program that shared with you earlier in June. I apologized that it was a short notice last time. The new deadline is September 30, 2021. We are organizing two rounds of virtual ‘Roadshow’ to introduce the program and solicitation on August 25th and 30th. No pre-registration is required.


Mekong Policy Fellowships


Have you recently completed your doctoral research? Does your work focus on health security, planetary health and the connections between human, animal and ecosystem health (the ‘One Health’ approach?)? Did you conduct your fieldwork in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, or Viet Nam?

If you answered “yes” to all questions, this opportunity may be for you.

Pact Thailand is putting out a call for applications through its new program, 'Mekong Connections.' The program is supported by the US Department of State. The Mekong Policy Fellowships will support emerging academics to present the policy implications of their work, and promote policy solutions to health security challenges.

The program team is inviting applications from early to mid-career academics who would like to receive funding and mentoring to help take their work to the next level. Fellows will take part in online ‘writeshops’ organized as part of their Fellowship, write opinion pieces for the mass media and other public channels, and network with other Fellows in the

region. The Fellowship will provide a US$2,000 grant and give access to a number of networking events and opportunities.
