The Carter Center Graduate Assistantships

The Carter Center Graduate Assistantship Program offers a limited number of funded opportunities for those currently enrolled in professional schools such as law school.

Health Programs 

Under the leadership of former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, a long-standing champion for the rights of people with mental illnesses, the Carter Center’s Mental Health Program works to promote awareness about mental health issues, inform public policy, achieve equity for mental health care comparable to other health care, and reduce stigma and discrimination against those with mental illnesses. The Mental Health Program seeks to recruit a graduate assistant who can support activities across the program, including primarily efforts under the Global Behavioral Health (GBH) pillar, but also Public Policy (PP), and the Rosalynn Carter Fellowships for Mental Health Journalism (RCJF).
