NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIPS OFFICE – Global Health Corps Fellowship Program
Francis DuVinage, Director – Leslie Brice, Assistant Director –
Are you a senior or recent graduate who is passionate about building a
movement for health equity? Do you believe that health is a human right?
Learn about the Global Health Corps (GHC), a program that aims to mobilize a
global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity.
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 yearlong
fellowships. GHC fellows are currently working in Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda,
Malawi, Zambia and the United States. They 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.
We are holding five information sessions. Please RSVP to [log in to unmask]
