Here’s an exciting opportunity for recent graduates and young professionals who want to promote global health equity: A U.S.-based nonprofit has just opened applications for 2013-2014 fellowships in the field.

The Global Health Corps offers 13-monthlong fellowships with health care organizations and government agencies in the United States and various countries in sub-Saharan Africa. GHC’s expanding list of partners includes the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Partners In Health and mothers2mothers.

The fellowships are open to young professionals aged 30 or under with at least an undergraduate degree, but not necessarily health-related, as Barbara Bush, one of GHC’s founders has explained to Devex.

For the current round of applications, which opened Dec. 3 and will run through Feb. 3, university students who expect to earn their undergraduate degrees by July 2013 are qualified to apply.

Descriptions of positions available for the 2013-2014 fellowship will be posted online on Dec. 21, when the second part of applications kicks off. The actual fellowship will be from mid-July 2013 to mid-August 2014.

Find out more about the GHC application process and fellowship program, and read our exclusive interview with Bush about the organization’s origins and missions as well as her thoughts on global health leadership.
