Now Announcing: Our Global Health Fellowship!

October 27, 2019

To wipe out malaria worldwide within this generation, we need today’s students – the future malaria scientists, researchers, and advocates – to take ownership of this historic opportunity. 

Nothing But Nets leads efforts in the US to galvanize young people around the global fight to end malaria. This fall, we’re taking this nationwide student outreach to the next level by launching the Global Health Fellowship (GHF).   

The GHF is creating a network of student advocates across American universities and high schools. The fellowship program will train and empower students to become effective malaria champions – both in their community and on Capitol Hill

Turning their passion into action, GHF Fellows will launch campaigns on their campuses while also meeting with members of Congress to ensure strong US support for critical global malaria programs. The GHF will provide webinars and professional development opportunities to Fellows, culminating in Nothing But Nets’ annual Leadership Summit and Lobby Day on Capitol Hill (the next Summit will be March 8-10, 2020).  

Through a competitive application process, Nothing But Nets recently selected its inaugural class of 10 GHF student groups, each receiving a $1,000 grant. The most successful group, based on an activity-based points system, will have the opportunity to take a summer learning trip with UN Foundation staff to a region where Nothing But Nets works.  

If you’d like to learn more about GHF, please contact Amma Boateng, Nothing But Nets’ Campaign Coordinator, at aboateng@unfoundation.org.
