Opportunity Description

Applications are open for the Gender Equity/GBV Evidence Accelerator Fellowship, hosted by the Center for Global Women’s Health and Gender Equity (CGWHE) at Johns Hopkins University. This fellowship program offers practitioners, professionals, and scholars a year-long opportunity to enhance evidence generation, synthesis, and translation skills for gender equity and gender-based violence (GBV), particularly in low- and middle-income settings. This fellowship includes sponsored mentorship, select coursework, and networking opportunities aimed at advancing careers in gender equity work.

The part-time fellowship emphasizes skill development in evidence generation, analysis, and translation for gender equity and GBV. Fellows will undertake select coursework from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (BSPH) and benefit from ongoing mentorship from CGWHE faculty. The program includes networking opportunities and 1-2 in-person cohort gatherings, with most activities conducted virtually. Fellows will also undertake a mini-project under mentorship, focusing on gender equity/GBV research.

Ideal candidates include practitioners, researchers, and PhD students working in gender equity or GBV fields, seeking to enhance their skills and accelerate the impact of their work. The scholarship covers travel expenses, course fees, and faculty mentoring. Participants are encouraged to discuss potential participation with their employers and supported by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
