Thinking of a gap year (or half year) after graduation? Interested in a healthcare or public health career? Check out information shared by a recent Fellow:
My name is Ellie Janitz, a recent Vassar graduate and a Community Health Fellow at Project Horseshoe Farm. The Community Health Fellowship is a unique “gap year” opportunity for top recent college graduates from across the country. Since 2009, more than 100 graduates have served as Fellows, and the program continues to grow.
As a senior looking for opportunities last year, I wasn’t able to find many other options that offered such high levels of responsibility and hands-on experience in community health, education, organizational management, and leadership. Also, the organization provides housing and a monthly educational stipend.
Project Horseshoe Farm offers Community Health Fellowship programs in Alabama and California. Alumni consistently express how transformative their Fellowship experience has been, and Fellows go to some of the top medical schools, graduate programs, and nonprofit organizations across the U.S.
This upcoming year, HSF is offering our traditional Gap-Year Fellowship, which will begin June of 2022 and finish July of 2023 at the Greensboro, Marion, and Pomona sites. For applicants who are available and interested, we are also offering a 6-month Fellowship opportunity in Greensboro from January through July of 2022. It will be shorter, but similar in experience to the full year Fellowship.
The application deadline for the 2022-23 gap-year Fellowship is on February 13th, 2022.The application deadline for our 6-month Fellowship in Greensboro is November 14th, 2021. Our website gives a good overview of our programs, and you can find us on Handshake. I’d also be happy to share my personal experiences with you or any interested students.
