In an effort to equip and empower more women leaders in global health, the Harvard Global Health Institute and the Women and Health Initiative at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health offers a transformational fellowship specifically designed to promote leadership skills in individuals from low- and middle-income countries who will, in turn, mentor future female leaders in global health. We are excited to announce that the 2021 LEAD Fellowship application is now open.
Harvard Global Health Institute LEAD Fellows have access to world-class faculty, are provided with senior mentors and the opportunity to build a custom curriculum aligned to their own unique personal growth and leadership plan. Based on their specific interests and leadership goals, LEAD fellows engage in tailored leadership training program, speaking and networking opportunities, and independent project work. The fellowship offers the unique opportunity to build a global network of peers and relationships across schools and departments of Harvard University. The fellowship experience provides global health leaders time to reflect, recalibrate, and explore uncharted territories.
We look forward to welcoming a third cohort of LEAD Fellows, who will join a close-knit community of former Fellows from around the world. To date, Fellows have come from 6 different countries, with representation from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and South America. Their areas of focus have ranged from HIV/AIDS and healthcare to health policy at the highest levels of government and span disciplines including research, advocacy, administration and policy.
Candidates nominate themselves by applying for the fellowship. There are no age limits or academic prerequisites.
The 2021 application is now OPEN and will close on April 22nd 2021.
Applicants will be notified in July 2021 if they have received the LEAD fellowship opportunity. For more information on the LEAD fellowship experience, application requirements and eligibility please visit our website here.
