Global Health Corps Yearlong Paid Fellowship 2018/2019 for Young Professionals (Fully Funded)

Global Health Corps Fellowship 2018/2019

Application Deadline: January 17, 2018

Applications for the Global Health Corps 2018/2019 Fellowship program are now being accepted.

Global Health Corps is building the next generation of diverse health leaders. GHC offer a range of paid fellowship positions with health organizations in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, the United States, and Zambia and the opportunity to develop as a transformative leader in the health equity movement.

Eligibility Requirements

By the start of the fellowship, June 24, 2018,  fellows must:

  • Be 30 years or younger.
  • Hold a bachelor’s or undergraduate university degree.
  • Be proficient in English.



Global Health Corps handles all travel logistics or provides an equitable travel stipend to all fellows for Training Institute, quarterly workshops, and the End of Year Retreat.

Professional Development

Fellows are eligible to apply for up to $600 USD during the fellowship year from the GHC Professional Development Fund in order to pursue study or activities that contribute to their professional development.

Living Stipend

GHC fellows receive a living stipend that varies based on location and placement organization. The annual review of stipends takes into consideration the cost of living, peer organization and fellowship salaries, and the compensation package for full-time employees at placement organizations.

For Africa-based positions
The living stipend may be paid out in USD or local currency, as determined by the placement organization. Stipend amounts are post-tax. The monthly stipend in each country is:

  • Malawi: $650
  • Rwanda: $650
  • Uganda: $550
  • Zambia: $700

Completion Award

Fellows who complete the entire fellowship year in good standing and participate in the End of Year Retreat are eligible for the $1500 completion award.


For Africa-based positions
Either GHC or the placement organization arranges housing for fellows that meets our minimum housing standards. Housing varies depending on location and the placement organization. Possible housing scenarios include living with other GHC fellows, living with a co-fellow, living with other members of the placement organization, or living alone. Additionally, some fellows may live directly on the premises of the placement organization while others may be live in villages, towns or cities. If the partner is not arranging housing, national fellows may live in GHC-arranged housing or receive a housing allowance. Applicants will be informed of specific housing details at the time a fellowship offer is made.


For Africa-based national positions
Fellows will be placed on their placement organization’s employee health insurance. In the event that a placement organization does not have employee health insurance plan, the fellow will be enrolled in a national health insurance scheme by GHC.
