Getting Started

The administrative and instructional fee for the program is $999. There will be additional costs related to purchasing the required textbook, travel, project planning, and implementation. RAD-AID will provide guidance to potential resources and fundraising mechanisms for project completion; however, the creation and fulfillment of a travel budget is part of the project learning experience for participants. The syllabus and materials are available to participants through the RAD-AID Learning Center.

The course will run from April to October. The course drop date is April 30th, and no refunds will be granted past the drop date. A non-refundable deposit of $200, which will be deducted from your course fee, is due by enrollment to reserve your seat in the cohort. Annually, up to ten (10) awards are given to applicants from LMICs (as defined by The World Bank) to waive fees for participation so that all members of the global health community have access.
