How to Apply — Global Health Scholars

Each year, the GHS MAP admits a cohort of Global Health Scholars who fulfill the program requirements, receive intensive advising and mentorship, and are awarded an official designation on their transcripts upon successful completion of the program. However, all students with an interest in global health, including those not formally admitted into the MAP as a Global Health Scholar, have the ability and are encouraged to pursue coursework and activities in global health studies.

Students typically apply to be a Global Health Scholar in the fall of their sophomore year. On occasion, juniors with compelling interest in the GHS MAP may be considered for admittance into the program.

Students of all majors and interests are encouraged to apply; no former global health experience or coursework is required. We are interested in learning about why you are interested in global health, and what led you to apply to this program.

Application Deadline and Information Session
The online application for the Global Health Scholars program generally open up in early fall. Applications are due by end of October or early November. An information session about the program is typically offered in October.

Please check back to the website for an application link and a date/time for the Fall 2019 info session.
