Public Health Community Youth Fellowship
Application Deadline: January 10, 2018
The Open Society Foundations’ Youth Exchange, in partnership with the Public Health Program, seeks applicants for its Community Youth Fellowships. Selected fellows will receive a stipend for full-time, 18-month projects (prorated for part-time or 12-month projects).
The Community Youth Fellowships will support dynamic youth activists aged 18 to 30 who want to implement a project of their own design that acknowledges the intersection between the LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual) and Roma communities, and the multiple layers and forms of discrimination this community faces in healthcare settings. The projects we seek to support could focus on any area of health rights relevant to the young Roma LGBTQIA community, including sexuality, reproductive rights, disability, quality of life, and access to health care services.
Through these fellowships, the Open Society Foundations aim to provide young people at the early stage of their work with the support they need to develop great ideas that contribute to dismantle challenges in their communities and advance the values of an open society. Applicants may employ, either alone or in combination, a number of different strategies to achieve the goals and objectives of their project.
