The Public Health Law Fellowship is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and ChangeLab Solutions. This paid opportunity will provide graduate students (e.g., MPH, DrPH, MPA, PhD), law students, and recent alumni of these programs with on-the-job training to prepare them for careers in public health law or policy.
Fellows will be matched with mentors at host sites in state, tribal, local, or territorial health departments; CDC; or other public health law organizations that support work in public health law and policy.
Fellows will be classified as temporary employees and the host organization would be the employer. Fellows would be subject to taxes and protected by employment laws for the state / locality in which they will be working. This will require the host site organization to be registered as an employer in the state where the Fellow is working. In the event this is not administratively feasible for your organization, other arrangements with ChangeLab Solutions may be possible.
If your organization is interested in hosting a fellow, please complete the following form. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis to best match fellows with potential sites. Not all preferences can be accommodated. Contact Iyan John, VP of External Affairs, at email@example.com for additional information.
