FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME

ASPHER is very pleased to offer its new fellowship programme. This programme is being created to support master, doctoral and postdoctoral fellows in order to assist them in fulfilling their greater vision of how they wish to progress and develop in their career, as it relates to public health practice and research.

The programme is open to individuals associated with ASPHER member schools, including full and associate institutional members. The fellowship is for one year.

The call for applications will be announced each year at the Deans’ and Directors’ retreat and is to be disseminated by the network of schools and partner organisations. Applications will be accepted each year by October 31 and should include a detailed description of the ways in which the applicant intends to use the fellowship in the development of his/her career. There are no strict guidelines regarding what the fellowship must entail; some possibilities are participation in events/training/summer school/young professionals network activities; enrolment in education/training programmes; support for research activity; funding open access papers; or monthly payments to support some regular work, coaching and leadership training. The possibilities are endless!

The selection committee plans to meet during the annual EPH Conference and the results are to be communicated by the end of the event. A minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 individuals will receive support, subject to available funds. Funding will come from ASPHER, although sponsorship by individual member schools is welcome on top of that. The estimated budget for this programme is to be confirmed each year at the Deans’ and Directors’ Retreat in May/June and further confirmed by the time of the annual EPH Conference.

The programme aims to support and help build a group of true leaders having received training at the schools of public health and identified with the schools’ community, and enable them to participate fully in the professional (academic and practice) happenings in their respective fields of interest etc. This will ultimately lead to stronger public health academia and practice in Europe.

ASPHER will appoint a programme coordinator whose primary role will be to seek out the funding schemes in order to build the capacity of the fellowship programme. We are very pleased to launch this programme and hope that many will receive benefit from it.

Please note: The ASPHER Fellowship Programme is still currently going through development and structuring phases, more information will be provided on the application process, once its implementation has begun.
