Sponsoring Agency: Global Health Corps

Type of Fund: Fellowship

Deadline: January 12, 2022

Details:

GHC recruits and selects highly qualified applicants with diverse skill sets to be placed in high-impact organizations for a 13-month fellowship. During their fellowship year, fellows make significant contributions to their placement organizations and the communities they serve.

A GHC fellowship is an exciting opportunity to build skills and gain experience with a high-impact health organization, but it’s also much more than that. It’s a year that will catalyze your personal and professional growth as a leader, placing you within a global and diverse network of bright, young, and committed health equity champions. It is – the beginning of the rest of your career working towards equitable health systems.

  • Participate in bespoke training – The fellowship starts with one week of inspiring sessions with thought leaders, bonding with your cohort, and reflections on your role as a next-gen global health leader.
  • Training, coaching, and mentorship continue year-round!
  • Learn as you go – You will adapt and innovate as you learn the needs of your placement organization, and work to add value and advance health equity. There will be highs and lows, and new learnings every day.
  • Become part of a supportive, dynamic global community – GHC fellows and alumni span borders and boundaries of all kinds but form a tight-knit network united in the belief that health is a human right. Fellows are placed in pairs so there is always someone to turn to.
  • Build your resilience – Transforming health systems is complex, difficult, and long-term work and you have to bring your whole self. So cultivating resilience, self-care, and empathy as an emerging leader is a core component of the curriculum.

Eligibility Criteria

By the start of the fellowship, fellows must:

  • Be 30 years or younger.
  • Hold a bachelor’s or undergraduate university degree.
  • Be proficient in English.
  • Be a citizen or legal permanent resident of Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, or Zambia.
