Notice of an opportunity from Sam White, Class of 2006

Notice of an opportunity from Sam White, Class of 2006:

Roll 51 - 3065I hope you are well! I wanted to let you know that Global Health Corps applications for the 2014-15 fellowship are NOW OPEN! I think that this fellowship would be an awesome fit for Periclean Scholars – both previous and graduating – given the cross-cutting themes in the missions of GHC and PS! Plus, I’d love to have another Elon alum in the program! 🙂
 GHC is looking for driven, passionate, young leaders with diverse skill sets and experiences to join the movement for health equity. One-year paid fellowship positions are available with high impact NGOs and government organizations in East Africa, Southern Africa and the US.Screen Shot 2013-11-07 at 9.09.27 AM

 As a current Global Health Corps fellow in Malawi with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, I can say that the fellowship has been an incredible opportunity. I am gaining valuable professional experience, and engaging in leadership training and mentorship. Most importantly, I have become part of a vibrant and supportive global network of like-minded peers who I can call upon for advice and support throughout my career.

A key part of the GHC fellowship is support – fellows are provided housing, a living stipend, medical insurance, transportation, a dedicated in-country program manager, mentorship and professional development opportunities. During the fellowship year, fellows collaborate, innovate, and create sustainable change.

Applications close January 26, 2014.

I am happy to answer any questions people might have about the application process or about the fellowship.
