Global Health Corps Fellowship

Global Health Corps provides a yearlong paid fellowship for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to work on the front lines of the fight for global health equity at existing health organizations and government agencies. GHC offers two fellowships: the Africa Fellowship and the US Fellowship.

The Africa Fellowship offers young professionals from Burundi, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe paid 13 month fellowships with health organizations in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Zambia. Africa Fellows work with placement organizations that are doing excellent work in improving healthcare access and health outcomes in impoverished communities. Africa Fellows receive training, a stipend and housing, professional development funds, a completion award, and other benefits.

The US Fellowship identifies diverse, high-potential, emerging public health leaders and provides them with the leadership training, coaching, network, and resources to excel in their careers and advance health equity. US Fellows must be current public health workers.

Applicants must be 30 and under, have an undergraduate degree by the start of the fellowship, and be proficient in English.
