Purpose

The Bloomberg Fellows Program provides public health training, scholarships, and stipends for individuals who are currently working with organizations in the areas of:

  • Adolescent health
  • Addiction and overdose
  • Environmental challenges
  • Obesity and the food system
  • Violence

The Bloomberg Fellows program, in partnership with the Center for Indigenous Health, supports cohorts of Indigenous Scholars that are looking to use public health tools to address the most pressing issues in their communities. The program goal is to accelerate health and educational equity for American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian peoples.

Participants can choose to pursue a Masters of Public Health (MPH) degree full-time or part-time, primarily in Baltimore or primarily online. Participants may also choose to pursue a Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) degree. After graduation, fellows take their skills back to their organizations and work for at least one year.

Eligibility

Eligible applicants are individuals from Indigenous communities that are currently working with an organization that focuses on public health in the areas of adolescent health, addiction and overdose, environmental challenges, obesity and the food system, and violence.

Candidates must also apply and be accepted into the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health MPH or DrPH programs.
