Program Activities

Global Health Fellows build their skills and knowledge through a year-long series of workshops, dinner discussions, career development sessions, and peer exchanges. GH Fellows benefit from a peer network of support and access to a wide range of resources as they pursue field opportunities, independent research projects, and other endeavors in global health. Highlights from the program have included a training with faculty from the Comprehensive Rural Health Project in Jamkhed, India, a fireside chat with health leaders from the Arctic, workshops on stakeholder mapping in community health, and conversations with a wide range of global health leaders. 


The Fellows program is open to undergraduates, medical, MBA, and graduate students from all disciplinary backgrounds. Applicants must be be able to attend a fall retreat planned for the first weekend of the undergraduate term and a minimum twelve sessions per year. Preference is given to students who have demonstrated interest in global health equity through academic coursework, co-curricular activities, and off term or work experiences. Participation in a Dickey Center-funded international internship is not a prerequisite for selection for the program. 

The application for the 2017-18 Global Health Fellows Program is now closed. Please direct questions about the program to the Global Health Initiative.
