2020 Global Health Corps Fellowship for Young Health Professionals
Deadline: January 15, 2020.
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, 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, 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, the United
States, or Zambia.
GHC fellows receive a living stipend that varies based on location and placement organization. Stipends take into consideration the cost of living, peer organization fellowship stipend, and local compensation of full-time employees.
In addition, fellows are provided with:
- Housing or a housing stipend;
- Health insurance; and,
- Payment for travel to/from the placement site as well as GHC training and retreats for the duration of the fellowship.
All fellows may also apply during their fellowship year for professional development funds of up to $600 USD. Upon successful completion of the fellowship year, all fellows receive a completion award of $1,500 USD
