USAID Global Health Fellowships

Deadline: January 20th and 27th, 2014

The Global Health Fellows Program II is a five year cooperative agreement with the US Agency for International Development implemented and managed by the Public Health Institute in partnership with Global Health Corps, GlobeMed, Management Systems International and PYXERA Global.

Fellows work inside USAID offices in Washington, DC (the Agency’s headquarters), in the Agency’s missions throughout the world, or with Agency implementing partners (other government agencies, multilateral and non-governmental organizations). When a fellow works within the Agency, s/he does not have a direct employer-employee relationship with the Agency itself. Rather, GHFP-II fellows are employees of the Public Health Institute (PHI) and are bound by the rules and guidelines of PHI pertaining to salary, leave, benefits, travel, promotion, discipline and ethics, among others. GHFP-II fellows are legally supervised by a senior PHI staff member, and receive day-to-day operational direction, technical guidance and mentoring from an Onsite Manager at USAID. GHFP-II fellows frequently interact with GHFP-II and PHI staff through one-on-one meetings, social activities, professional development events, and career-oriented activities implemented by the program’s performance and career development team.

To qualify as a fellow, one would possess:

  • A master’s degree in a relevant field; and
  • US citizenship or US permanent residency.
