Welcome to your leadership journey. The Global Health Corps Fellowship program 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 towards equitable health systems.
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. Trainings, coaching, and mentorship continue year-round!
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 our curriculum.
By the start of the fellowship, fellows must:
- Be 30 years of age or younger.
- Hold a bachelor’s or undergraduate university degree.
- Be proficient in English.
- Be a citizen or legal permanent resident of Burundi, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, or Zimbabwe.
Our application and review process are designed to assess your leadership fit for the GHC community as well as your skills fit for your fellowship role. Applicants may apply for up to three fellowship roles. Every year, we receive a high volume of amazing and inspiring applicants to join our fellowship class and can only accept a small percentage. However, about one-third of our fellows have applied more than once!Selecting our next cohort!
We review applications January through February, conduct interviews in March and April, and make offers on a rolling basis starting in late April. The fellowship starts at our Training Institute in July 2024.
