Seeking change agents
The Bloomberg Fellows Program is a groundbreaking initiative to provide world-class public health training to individuals engaged with organizations tackling critical challenges facing the United States. Fellows receive a full scholarship to earn an MPH or DrPH degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. We're looking for individuals working in one of our five focus areas:
- Addiction and Overdose
- Environmental Challenges
- Obesity and the Food System
- Risks to Adolescent Health
Applicants must apply in partnership with the organizations for which they work. Following graduation, Bloomberg Fellows will work for at least one year for their organizations, putting their new skills to use. These individuals and organizations will then join a growing network of scholarship, education and practice devoted to using the tools of public health to address the problems of the 21st century.
The Bloomberg School of Public Health strives for a highly diverse class in terms of race and ethnicity, income, geography, and other key areas.
We will hold additional webinar sessions for each of our five focus areas (register at the links below):
- Risks to Adolescent Health: August 15, 2018, 1:00 p.m. EST
- Violence: September 12, 2018, 2:00 p.m. EST
