Call for applications for the 2025 Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity Fellowship Program!

The Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity (AFHE) program is dedicated to training those leaders – individuals who will have health equity as their mindset and health disparities reduction as their explicit skillset. With this philosophy and support from the Atlantic Philanthropies, the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity team at the Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity designed, and in January 2017, launched the Leaders for Health Equity fellowship program, now called the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity at the George Washington University.

This is a one-year fellowship. There are in-person meetings, called convenings, throughout the year that represent a total anticipated time commitment of five weeks. Convenings are full-time, out of office commitments that take place in different parts of the world. In between convenings, there is an online curriculum taught by the AFHE program faculty. These online trainings take place every two weeks for 90 minutes. There is an additional time commitment for self-directed learning of 12-16 hours per month. Self-directed learning activities include completion of program readings, videos and assignments. Assignments may be related to your individual project, reflection and/or program evaluation. Attendance and participation for both in-person and online coursework is required for successful completion of the program.

Fellows are inducted into the Atlantic Fellows lifelong community after they complete their fellowship year. Lifelong fellows continue to have access to an international network of leaders committed to combating inequity in their communities. They are invited to participate in global interest groups, seminars and conferences, as well as collaborate with other Atlantic Fellows on equity-focused projects.

They are expected to remain employed throughout the fellowship so that leadership lessons are applied in real-life scenarios. All educational experiences and travel expenses related to participation in this fellowship including in-person convenings are paid for by Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity.

You do NOT need to be a health professional to apply for this fellowship. AFHE is looking to recruit fellows who are currently engaged in health-related work including, but not limited to: finance, economics, art, architecture, academia, government, public health, law, media, technology and healthcare delivery. AFHE encourages those with diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply. The program will select 15-20 fellows per year.
