Establish a GHEFP Site

Background

The Center for Global Health (CGH) has, for a number of years, supported students in their efforts to gain experience working in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Through this program we have funded 425 students to travel overseas. Most of these students have engaged in a research experience working with a Hopkins faculty member.

The Global Health Established Field Placements matches students with faculty members looking to establish a project site overseas. The CGH works to recruit faculty members interested in having a student work on their project(s) overseas. Students apply for these placements, and selections are made by the CGH which matches the priorities of the faculty member with the priorities of the students. Selected students are given a travel grant of $3,500 from the CGH to defray travel and subsistence costs.

Call for Applications - Deadline: December 13, 2017, 11:59pm EST

Faculty and staff who are interested in hosting a site are encouraged to read the “Call for Applications.” The application deadline to host students in the 2018 Cycle is December 13, 2017. This cycle prospective mentors will apply through our online application process. Old application forms will not be accepted. Please note that in the event of receipt of more placements than can be funded, priority will be given in chronologic order of receipt.
