To combine academic rigours with cost-saving, the Global Health Corps is inviting talented emerging leaders to apply for its range of paid fellowship positions.
The organization offers competitive fellowship offers with health organizations in Malawi, Uganda, Rwanda and Zambia. The scholarship is designed for undergraduate students to make a practical approach to strengthen health systems and catalyze personal and professional growth as a leader.
