Global Health Established Field Placements (GHEFP)
Hopkins-affiliate global health programs have prepared placements for students in their developing world programs. Applicants must apply for posted placements. This is a great opportunity for students to gain international experience!
Students who are selected for placement and agree to participate at their placement for a minimum of 6 weeks will be awarded a grant of $3,500 by the Center for Global Health.
Awardees will be required to assist at the overseas site for the posted period. The placement site will not be required to pay the student or contribute financially to their transportation, subsistence, or other costs of living in-country -- that is what the grant from the Center for Global Health is meant to cover. The placement site, however, will be required to provide supervision of the student and offer assistance in locating suitable housing and general advice about living in-country.
The 2017 Cycle will open to applicants in January 2017.
GHEFP is open to all full-time students of the Johns Hopkins University who will return to complete their academic programs. Additional limitations may apply and are provided in the descriptions.
- Students who would be completing their studies prior to their projected travel date are not eligible to apply.
- MPH students, MS1s, and medical residents are not eligible to apply.
Apply - students from the 2016 cohort are currently at their placements and beginning to return!
The 2017 cycle will open on January 2, 2017. After that date check out this cycle's projects and learn more about how to apply.
