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. This is a great opportunity for students to gain international experience!

We will only be offering the GHEFP opportunity to graduate students for the 2021 cycle due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Placements vary in length, with a minimum of 8-10 weeks. If students are allowed to travel, we will require a minimum of 4 weeks in-country regardless of the length of the placement. 

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). 

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 will choose to do so. 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.

Applications for the 2021 Cycle were due on February 14, 2021 and are now closed. 

Eligibility 

GHEFP is open to all full-time graduate students of the Johns Hopkins University who can work with their placement for a minimum of 8 weeks, and travel for a minimum of 4 consecutive weeks (if travel is available), and will return to complete their academic programs. Additional limitations may apply and are provided in the descriptions.
