Call for Applicants- Global Health Corps 2011-2012 Fellowships for individuals focusing on healthcare who have an undergrad degree and are under 30yrs old
GLOBAL HEALTH CORPS 2011-2012 FELLOWSHIPS NOW AVAILABLE!
Global Health Corps (GHC) believes that a global movement of individuals and organizations fighting for improved health outcomes and access to healthcare for the poor is necessary in order to change the unacceptable status quo of extreme inequity. GHC works to strengthen this movement by recruiting, training, and supporting the movement’s future leaders, diversifying the pool of young people working in global health, and amplifying the impact of individuals through the formation of a strong community of leaders.
GHC provides opportunities for young professionals from diverse backgrounds to work on the frontlines of the fight for global health equity in year-long fellowships. Our fellows have a measurable impact on the health of the communities in which they work, and draw upon that experience and the GHC alumni network to deepen their impact throughout their careers.
GHC will create a pipeline of young leaders for the global health equity movement, and at scale will play a central role in sustaining and consistently reinvigorating this movement for change. This infusion of young, passionate, skilled leaders will help to tip the balance towards a more equitable and just global distribution of health services.
Applications for 2011-2012 fellowships are now open! Applicants may choose up to three fellowship placements to apply for. Please check out our Open Placements page for a full list of available fellowships and their descriptions.
