Our department hosts the Humphrey Fellowship program. Additional international fellows are funded by the Foege, Fulbright, and CDC.
Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program
This program—developed by President Jimmy Carter in honor of former Vice President Hubert Humphrey—brings accomplished mid-career professionals from designated developing countries to the United States for one year of non-degree graduate study and practical professional experience.
Emory University Center for Humanitarian Emergencies Fellowship
The Emory University Center for Humanitarian Emergencies offers a one-year fellowship for mid-career professionals from low- and middle-income countries affected by conflict. This fellowship builds the capacity of non-US based responders in the event of complex humanitarian emergencies through training in epidemiology, rapid health assessment, surveillance, surveys, data analysis, monitoring and evaluation, and a collaborative operations research project. CHE fellows participate in the one-year accelerated MPH program and receive a certificate in humanitarian emergencies. Past fellows have gone on to work for UN organizations, International NGOs, and in academia.
Foege Fellowship Program
The William H. Foege Fellowships in Global Health supports mid-career professionals from developing nations who demonstrate the leadership, dedication, and initiative to improve public health across the globe. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation established the Foege Fellowship in 2003 to honor the legacy of Dr. Bill Foege and to deepen the capacity of the international public health workforce, and each year we welcome a new class of Fellows who embody the passion and vision that Dr. Foege brought to every aspect of his career.
