Partner applications for the 2014-2015 fellowship class are now closed. Applications for the 2015-2016 fellowship class will open in August of 2014.

Interested in applying to be a placement organization with GHC? We accept applications from organizations that are improving health care access and outcomes in Burundi, Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, the United States (Boston, New York/Newark, DC/Baltimore, Philadelphia), and Zambia. Our placement organizations range in size, scope of work, and geographic focus: We work with small grassroots organizations, large global institutions, and a spectrum of organizations in between. For a current list, please click here.

Fellows work in teams of two – one international fellow and one national fellow – focusing on a wide range of issues in a variety of different positions, including program management, monitoring and evaluation and procurement and logistics. Organizations must be able to identify an area of need, create a job description for a fellowship position, demonstrate the capacity to absorb two new fulltime staff, and identify a clear manager for the fellow team in order to be considered for partnership.

GHC advertises the fellowship opportunities and candidates apply to specific fellowship positions, for which they have relevant skills and experience. GHC reviews applications, interviews a select group, and recommends finalists to placement organizations, who make the final selection.

“The combination of local and international fellows had a very positive impact on the organization. It helped a faster integration in the community for the international fellow and served as a role model of collaboration and mutual mentorship. They showed high capacity to transfer skills within a very critical service design context.” Fellow Supervisor, 2010-11
