Support innovative multidisciplinary collaboration 

The Johns Hopkins Alliance for a Healthier World is committed to developing the next generation of global health equity researchers and program implementers. The Global Health Equity Scholars Program was established in 2017 to facilitate multidisciplinary collaborations between all Johns Hopkins University schools and divisions. Scholars will conduct research, lead student group events, and facilitate interactions between experts from several disciplines. They will contribute to the innovative work of the Alliance under the direct mentorship of thematic leaders and senior staff.

Encouraging students from a diverse mix of disciplines

The team at the Alliance for a Healthier World is seeking a diverse mix of student scholars to assist with our innovative multidisciplinary approach to tackling global health equity issues.  See examples of these how JHU disciplines interconnect to develop solutions. The ideal mix of studnet scholars includes but goes beyond traditional public health-focused schools or departments.

In addition to students of SOM, SON, and JHSPH, we are particularly eager to encourage students from the SOE, KSAS, WSE, SAIS, Carey Business School and the Peabody Institute to also apply.
