Applications are now open for the 2015-2016 Global Health Corps Fellowship.

The Training Institute will run from June 27th to July 12th 2015. Fellows fly directly from Training to their placement sites (travel is arranged by GHC). The period of commitment is from mid-June to mid-August of the following year. This includes attending a two-week Summer Training Institute in June/July, followed by twelve months working on the ground on the fellowship, and a final group exit meeting in August. Fellows travel directly from Training to their placement site.
GHC fellows are provided with living stipends, housing, health insurance, work expenses, and all travel required for fellowship participation. Fellows are also eligible to receive up to $600 in professional development funds. In addition to covering these expenses, all fellows receive a completion award of $1500 at the end of the fellowship.
- Be 30 or under at the start of the fellowship
- Have an undergraduate university degree by July 2015

- Are committed to social justice
- Inspire and mobilize others
- Adapt and innovate
- Are self-aware and committed to learning
- Get results
All Global Health Corps fellows are motivated, intelligent, and believe health is a human right. They come from diverse backgrounds, and vary in educational experience, professional expertise, and personal story. Fellows have meaningful impact on their Placement Organization during the fellowship year, while developing leadership skills and relationships within a supportive community that will prepare them for deepened impact on global health over the course of their careers.
