John Hopkins University is accepting applications this August for its Bloomberg Fellows program. This is part of the Bloomberg American Health Initiative focused on tackling some of the toughest health challenges to facing the United States:
But this isn’t a traditional scholarship program.
They are looking for individuals who are already working with organizations on the front lines of one or more of these five challenges in the United States. Applicants must apply with support from their organization. While at the school, Bloomberg Fellows continue to engage with organization for academic and practice projects.
The Fellows have the option of attending full time on-campus in Baltimore, or part time online (while they continue to work). They commit that once their studies are complete, they serve at least one additional year at their organization. And their organization joins an ongoing network of practice and research with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
The goal is to find a diverse range of organizations and fellowship applicants from both inside and outside the public health world. Beyond local and state health departments, fellows might come from local governments, police departments, community organizations, housing authorities, school systems, just to name a few possibilities.
