Global Health Corps Fellowships

SAVE THE DATE: Global Health Corps Fellowship roles open December 5th, 2018 

The Global Health Corps is a next gen leadership accelerator, whose mission is to mobilize a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. We are building a network of young change makers who share a common belief: Health is a Human Right. 

About the Fellowship 


Our fellows, ages 21-30, work with high-impact health organizations in yearlong paid roles with nonprofit and government partners across the US (NJ, NY, DC, Boston) and East and Southern Africa (Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, Zambia). They fill critical gaps in their placement organizations as many have non-traditional health backgrounds. Throughout the year, they engage in intensive leadership development and community building, striving to embody our leadership practices as they work to address health inequities across the global health field.
