Global Health Established Field Placements (GHEFP)

Hopkins-affiliated global health programs have prepared placements for students in their low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) 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. This grant is intended to cover costs associated with travel, food, and other costs of living in-country.

Awardees will be required to assist at the overseas site for the agreed time period. The placement site will not be required to pay the student or contribute financially though some sites do. The placement site and JHU faculty will be required to provide supervision of the student and offer assistance in locating suitable housing and general advice about living in-country.

The 2018 Cycle will open to applicants on January 2, 2018. To learn more read the Call for Applications.

Eligibility 

GHEFP is open to all full-time students of the Johns Hopkins University who can travel for a minimum of 6 consecutive weeks and will return to complete their academic programs. Additional limitations may apply and are provided in the descriptions.

The 2018 cycle will open on January 2, 2018. You can check out projects from the 2017 cycle and learn more about how to apply.
