International Fellowships in Women's Health and HIV

A small number of funded fellowships are available for students from Columbia's graduate schools (including the Schools of Architecture, Business, Dentistry, Engineering, International and Public Affairs, Journalism, Law, Nursing, Public Health, Social Work, and Teachers' College) to work with ICAP staff as they implement and evaluate HIV programs.

Each fellowship will include up to eight weeks of work with ICAP in sub-Sarahan Africa, as well as varying amounts of time working at ICAP New York. Fellowships will be personalized and designed to match student experience with specific program needs; they will be jointly supervised by faculty from ICAP and by the student's graduate school of origin.

Fellows will receive support from ICAP to cover airfare, lodging, and a living stipend.  However, they should anticipate covering other incidental costs such as visa and immunizations on their own.

We are looking for students with initiative, experience, and creativity - prior work in resource-limited settings is preferred, but not required. 

Applications are currently being accepted. Please send statement of interest and resume to Megan Affrunti at mca2115@columbia.edu and write WHHF and school in which you are enrolled in subject heading. Application deadline is Feb. 13, 2009. Please include name, title, and contact information for at least one academic or professional reference. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come-first-served basis.
