ASPPH is pleased to announce a new fellowship program available for recent graduates from ASPPH-member, Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH)-accredited Schools and Programs of Public Health – the ASPPH Public Health Philanthropy Fellowship Program. This exciting opportunity is sponsored through a grant to ASPPH from the de Beaumont Foundation. The deadline to apply is 11:59 PM, Thursday, March 3, 2016.
The de Beaumont Foundation (“the Foundation”), established by Pierre S. de Beaumont in 1998 as an independent, private foundation, believes that a strong public health system is essential. The Foundation works to transform the practice of public health through strategic and engaged grantmaking. Programs funded by the Foundation build the capacity and stature of the public health workforce, encourage collaboration between health departments, and improve communication with the public. The fellowship will place one fellow within the Foundation for a period of one year, with a possible one-year extension. During that time, the fellow will learn about the field of public health philanthropy through active participation and deep practical application in the areas that include, but are not limited to, program development, strategic planning, grants review and monitoring, and data analysis and scientific inquiry. While the program will provide rigorous training for its participant, it is also designed with flexibility in order to meet the particular learning interests of the fellow.
To be eligible for this program, applicants must have received their Masters or Doctorate degree prior to the beginning of the fellowship (no later than June 2016) or within the last five years (no earlier than May 2011). Graduate degrees must come from an ASPPH member graduate school or program of public health accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). (For a list of ASPPH members, see www.ASPPH.org.) All applicants must be U.S. citizens or hold a visa permitting permanent residence (“Green Card”) in the U.S. to be eligible for the fellowship program.
Preference will be given to candidates who are Certified in Public Health (CPH) and with a background in epidemiology and/or health policy.
The fellowship position is a full-time opportunity for duration of one year (July 2016 – July 2017, estimated). The selected fellow will be based at the Foundation’s headquarters in Bethesda, MD.
