Establish a GHEFP Site

Overview

The Center for Global Health (CGH) supports students in their efforts to gain experience working in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) through the Global Health Established Field Placements (GHEFP). GHEFP is a unique program in which students work on faculty projects to gain research or practice skills and experiences that help them become well-rounded global health professionals. 

While travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic may prevent students from traveling to the field, CGH is prioritizing the continuation of the GHEFP program for the 2021 cycle, with adjustments made for flexibility to accommodate travel uncertainty.  

At this time, the CGH is recruiting faculty and staff members interested in having a student work on their project(s) remotely, and if possible, in person if/when travel becomes available to the site. 

Similar to in the past, students will apply for these placements and selections will be made by the CGH through a matching process taking into consideration both faculty and student preferences. Selected students will be awarded a grant of up to $3,500 from the CGH, broken up into two payments to defray subsistence costs while working remotely and travel costs (if possible). 

Please see the GHEFP 2021 Call for Site Applications here.

CGH will host an an optional meeting in which potential faculty and staff mentors may ask questions about the 2021 GHEFP grant cycle on  December 4, 2020 at 12:00pm EST. Please register here. 

Prospective mentors should apply through the new online Site Application

Deadline to submit: December 20, 2020, 11:59 pm EST
