The Global Health Corps invites fellowship application from individuals around the world for different fellowship positions in the United States. This is an opportunity to work in organizations in the United States for a period of one year. Global Health Corps’ mission is to build a movement for global health equity, and the ability to reach as many people as possible is a key part of that mission.
The fellows are provided living stipends, housing, health insurance, work expenses, and all travel required for fellowship participation. They will also receive up to $600 in professional development funds. In addition to covering these expenses, all fellows receive a completion award of $1500 at the end of the fellowship.
The fellowship period will be from mid-June to mid-August of the following year. This includes attending a two-week Summer Training Institute in June/July, followed by twelve months working on the ground on the fellowship, and a final group exit meeting in August. Fellows travel directly from Training to their placement site. The Training Institute will run from June 27th to July 12th 2015. Fellows fly directly from Training to their placement sites (travel is arranged by GHC).
Each fellowship teams consist of two fellows. All teams are cross-cultural, with one fellow from the host country (the ‘national fellow’), and one fellow from outside the host country (the ‘international fellow’).
