The Bloomberg Fellows Program provides fully funded Master of Public Health degrees at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The Bloomberg Fellows Program is part of the Bloomberg American Health Initiative, a major investment in a healthy future for the United States. The Initiative seeks to make progress on five challenges facing health in the United States:
- Addiction and overdose
- Environmental challenges
- Obesity and the food system
- Risks to adolescent health
They are recruiting individuals who are currently working with organizations on the front lines of one or more of these five challenges in the United States. Fellows might come from local governments, police departments, community organizations, housing authorities, school systems, just to name a few possibilities.
While at the school, Bloomberg Fellows will center their studies in their focus area and continue to engage their organization while at the school. Students have the option of attending full time on-campus in Baltimore, or part time online. Once their studies are complete, they will serve at least one year at their organization, with the organization joining an ongoing network of practice and research with the Bloomberg School of Public Health.
