Kiphart Collegiate Fellows Program

In partnership with the College’s office of Career Advancement, the Kiphart Center supports internships to provide students with hands-on experience working in the fields of global health and social development. Internships can take place at a variety of organizations with preference for those in low- and middle- income countries (LMICs). Students selected into the Kiphart Collegiate Fellowship program receive guidance on identifying and applying for internship placements that fit their professional interests, and will have access to an exclusive job board with opportunities from organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, UNICEF, Unite for Sight, USAID, and Women in Global Health, among others. Students may also pursue self-secured internship opportunities, but should consult with Kiphart Center and Career Advancement staff to determine if these opportunities meet Fellowship requirements.

Kiphart Collegiate Fellows will also have exclusive cohort events throughout the fellowship year, including a spring kickoff event and a symposium in Autumn Quarter 2022 to present on their internship experience. Accepted Kiphart Fellows are eligible for a stiped up to $5,000 stipend to support their summer internship.

Student Eligibility

Each year, up to 15 highly qualified students are accepted into the Kiphart Collegiate Fellowship. The program is open to UChicago first, second, and third-year students in the College. Students of any major are eligible to apply. Candidates with a demonstrable interest in global health and development, and those interested in pursuing an internship in LMICs are strongly preferred. 

How to Apply

Applications are managed by Career Advancement and posted on Handshake in the Autumn Quarter. All application materials are due in late November or early December, which notifications of acceptance made by mid-December or early January.
