2019 Global Health Corps Fellowship
Deadline: January 16, 2019.
Global Health Corps is building the next generation of diverse health leaders. We offer a range of paid fellowship roles with health organizations in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, the United States, and Zambia and the opportunity to develop as a transformative leader in the health equity movement. Everyone has a role to play in the health equity movement.
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 – we hope – the beginning of the rest of your career working to transform health systems to deliver for all.
By the start of the fellowship, June 30, 2019, fellows must:
- Be 30 years or younger.
- Hold a bachelor’s or undergraduate university degree.
- Be proficient in English.
They are looking for a diverse group of emerging leaders from every sector and professional background who bring the skills necessary to address critical health systems gaps and who embody our key leadership practices:
I. Collaborative: You value inclusivity and collaboration across sectors, cultures, and borders of all kinds. You are ready to listen to and embrace others’ perspectives, even when they are different than your own.
II. Committed to Learning: You are willing to push yourself outside your comfort zone often (while practicing self-care). You are ready to approach a personally transformative year with integrity, humility, and self-reflection.
III. Inspiring and Mobilizing: You are ready to strengthen and use your voice — the most powerful tool for change that you have — in order to engage others, create space for critical conversation, and effect meaningful social change in global health.
IV. Committed to Social Justice: You are passionate about social justice in health and have both the patience and the motivation to engage in the hard, complex work of building just health systems.
V. Adaptive and Innovative: You are excited by a design-thinking approach to building a better world, creatively embracing wicked problems and ready to embrace failure as learning.
VI. Results-driven: You are committed to bringing your best and doing the work in the day-to-day, showing up as a critical part of the global health equity movement.
GHC fellows receive a living stipend that varies based on location and placement organization. Stipends are determined based on the cost of living, peer organization and fellowship salaries, salaries of full-time employees at the placement organizations, and other benefits provided.
In addition, fellows are provided with:
- Housing or a housing stipend;
- Health insurance, depending on citizenship and placement; and,
- Payment for travel to/from the placement site as well as GHC training and retreats for the duration of the fellowship.
