GHEFP 2015 Cycle Opens January 01!

The 6th cycle of the Global Health Established Field Placements (GHEFP) program opened on Janaury 01, 2015. This program provides $3,500 travel grants to Hopkins students looking to gain international experience under the mentorship of Hopkins faculty members and their overseas partners.

Since its inception in 2006, the GHEFP has funded more than 250 students to work in lower-middle-income countries around the globe. Last year, 65 students traveled to 29 countries; most students remained in-country for at least 10 weeks.  One of last year's awardees said,

I am so grateful for this opportunity. I learned a lot about international research and found that I was supported, challenged, and offered constructive criticism as I completed my placement. I have grown as a young adult, student, and developing public health professional and the connections I established during this summer have already had a significant influence on my preparedness for a fruitful career in international health

In this year's cycle, the Center for Global Health is able to offer more than 70 placements to Hopkins students from a variety of backgrounds. Faculty members from the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, Jhpiego, CCP, and a number of departments at the School of Public Health have submitted sites to which students can apply. Johns Hopkins undergraduates and graduate students of all levels are encouraged to apply for the program by February 11, 2015.  You can read more about the Global Health Established Field Placement program here.
