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 2016 Cycle is no longer accepting applications. 

Eligibility 

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. 

Apply - Students and faculty mentors have submitted their final preferences & the Center is generating matches! 

The 2016 cycle is now closed to new applications. Applications were due in their entirety before midnight on February 11, 2016.  Check out this year's projects and learn more about how to apply.
