Global Health Media Fellowship
The Stanford Global Health Media Fellowship offers one fellowship per year to current students enrolled in U.S. medical institutions who are committed to a career in global health (candidates do not have to be from Stanford). This opportunity provides medical students with 12 months of practical training in the fundamentals of journalism, communications, and global health reporting on a variety of media platforms, including print, online, broadcast, and social and digital media. The application window opens each year in mid-December and closes Jan. 31.
Planetary Health Postdoctoral Fellowship
The Planetary Health Postdoctoral Fellowship seeks to foster the professional development of a new generation of planetary health researchers and ambassadors committed to protecting health on a changing planet – and developing solutions for a healthier future. The application window opens each year in mid-December and closes Jan. 31.
Global Health Equity Scholars Fellowship
The Global Health Equity Scholars (GHES) Fellowship is a one-year mentored research training program for post-doctoral fellows, upper-level PhD students and professional school (MD, DVM, DrPH, PharmD) students in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). GHES Fellowship is part of the Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars sponsored by the Fogarty International Center (FIC) and several collaborating institutes and centers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The GHES Fellowship brings together a consortium that includes Stanford University, the University of California, Berkeley, University of Arizona and Yale University. The application window usually opens in the fall quarter.
